Wait



                                      We Waited ....


The days had never been so balmy and sweet

Even though it was spring , our family were together

We would eat and drink like royalty

There was no shortage of food in that lock-down

We waited

Playing , running around the garden

Picking flowers , juicy fruits

We waited ---

Mother told us bedtime stories

Father trained the dogs with us

We waited ....

For death , it watched in the periphery

Making us wait in anticipation

So the days passed in slow motion

This wait makes you want everything

Happy times , idyllic days , never enough

We waited no more

The shattering glass reflected the sunlight

It refracted , myriad of diamonds flying

My last vision remembered as I left

My enchanted world
