Her burning heart ..~by Sarala Balachandran


 

 

Her burning heart ..

Behind that burning candle
There stands a heart
That weeps quietly 
A rejected mother at
old age home
drowning in sorrow !
She starts chanting the
Beads for safety of her child !
Non stop she chants tears
Rolling down her sallow cheeks
Wrinkled with agony of life !
As the candle burnt off
The darkness spreads everywhere
She heaves a sigh
A sigh that’s springing
Up from her painful heart
She fears everything in life
But holds on to her rope of faith !
She sits and chants
Throughout day and night
Without sleep
Her only wish
Her child’s safety !
She falls off to sleep
early morning hours and
as she opens her eyes
she sees the Creator
In the glory of
the golden sunrays !
Her mind becomes
Calm once again
As a ray of hope peeps in
a faint glow entering her heart !
