The Lost Child

I stretched my arms towards unknown bounds,
I gather them back, there is nothing
I have found.
The light of the night is dim
It is dying out,
I wish for the light to come back
To me again,
For I have to find my little child.
He is lost somewhere.
He told me he was going out for play.
The evening has passed off,
I went out to ask his friends,
They said,
He never passed their way.
I searched for him
In the playground, the
Fields and the road.
I found him nowhere,
He was lost somewhere,
In the shadowy sinister dark night,
But when tired and frightened,
I returned back home,
In the breaking light of dawn
I heard a cry from the courtyard
My child has returned back
I was elated.
My child smiled and said,
“Mother, I only played hide and seek,
To see if you could find me.
I hid in the courtyard and fell asleep,
I am sorry ‘Maa’,
I caused you pain.”
I only cried and held him long
And said,
“Without you,
I am all alone.”
