She Sleeps in Silence


Today
A soul was freed
snapping all the strings
of relationships
from the clutches
of excruciating pain
and
physical worries.

She had lived her life
Executing
mercenary formalities
of the lives
she evolved.

Lucky was she
to be fringed
by doting
kids n kin
encircling her
in the mellow days
of her life
rearing & raising her
satiating her
desires & dreams
that she left
incomplete for herself
battling
the strifes of life
as a Single Mother.

Destiny had been cruel
Snatching her radiance
in the prime youth
Shattering her life complete.


The road of life ahead
seemed endless
dark & dreary
But
she had to tread alone
for the life
in her lap
innocent & unknown
who only
babbled & recognized
the lap
the fragrance
of his Mom.

She gathered herself
stood tall
drying her tears that welled
Mustering courage
ready to conquer
the world
defying the norms
shielding herself
from
the piercing & prying eyes
invading
her womanhood.

The flesh in her arms
boosted
a power
to withstand the troubles
the life impregnated
in her path.

She fought
She won
the battle of life
shouldering
the responsibility
of a parent
rearing a responsible lad.

Her garden of life bloomed
that she nurtured with great care.
Happiness derived
and the small innocent guy
transformed
into a boulder
with a strong shoulder
weaning her
from the responsibilities
she shouldered.

Her kind grace
at a slow pace
emanated into
a family of care
who had
wide & contagious smiles
on their faces
and 
her days of moron were over.

She rejoiced
in her garden of joy
Her life infused
with 
innumerable mirth & care
making her forget
the times 
of despair & sorrow.

Time & tide
waits for none.
age advanced
organs failed
no medications functioned
and 
the time dawned
to leave the world.

The commotion 
The conflict
Of family & doctors
Finally ended.

The day arrived
to free 
the immortal soul
caged in the mortal body
which had decayed with time
and
it lingered for freedom
to wander in space.

Santa stepped at her side
rescuing her 
from the agony of pain
She laid in silence
and
her divine soul marched ahead
on a spiritual path
blessing 
her brethren
with a life laden with joy.
