Feeling Numb


There was a sudden need to wake up,
In deep slumber I was,
It was my daughter’s wedding,
And a beautiful bride she was!

More than the celebration of the joyous day,
I was worried about the future,
I knew she would in capable hands,
But the tension is always there.

A terrible numbness took over my left arm,
It had reached a dying fate,
No blood flew into it for a while,
And hence it was in such a state.

But since then, I am not able to get back to sleep,
What could be the reason for that?
I guess the arm was the last place to reach,
The spread of the numbness in my heart.

(A friend of mine says there is no need to be β€œblue” to be creative. I guess she is right.)

Yesterday I was thinking about the tension that my mom went through during my two elder sisters and my marriages. I can truly understand her fear and her feelings now.
