Daily Walks

Everything you scheduled
to go on a fast track.

You married me at a prime age
and got your postgraduate degree thereafter.

You gave birth to the children
at an appropriate time.

You attended to the birth of your grandchildren
and enjoyed your time delightfully playing with them.

The only grouse against you my beloved is
that you departed too soon and left me in the lurch
and this unexpected loneliness is haunting me altogether
in all the daily streaming walks of my present day's life.
