Sarah is there

I could see

she looks bare

how could she be?


Sarah is here

I could see

her eyes are filled with tears

what could be?


Sarah is everywhere

I could see

she is one without care

that could be.


Sarah as such  is not alone

I could see

seemingly a bag of bones

pity to be.sarah-oshea-january-1-2014-at-617-am-221514.png

My Friend

mother and daughterGetting down from the bus
Saw my friend crossing the road.
Delighted to see her after years
Made quick towards the other end.
She is Sarah my dearest friend
who walked swiftly like a deer.
Unable to cope with her ran at last.
Run, did I with a difficult stride.
Not able to catch her cried “Sarah”.
My voice was in full blast
Yet Sarah went on her way.
Once again called “Sarah”
at the top of my voice.
The lady stopped in a halt and turned
She looked exactly like young Sarah
who studied with me in college.
Rushing towards her in whatever
speed I could.
Looked at her from top to toe.
She smiled at me bemused.
Asked her if she knows Sarah.
The lady broke into laughter
Held my hand with love
gently said that Sarah is her mother.
