A Lady With A Difference - Poem by Geetima Baruah Sarma

An old lady,
Wrinkles stamped on her face,
Greeted me 'Merry Christmas',
Invited me to her residence.
Her cottage was simple and cosy,
Filled with love, kindness and humility,
Her daughters welcomed me,
Served dinner with cake and sweet.
With a simple job,
She struggled hard,
To educate her daughters,
Till they stood on their feet.
On Christmas day,
She thanked Jesus,
Invited guests,
Celebrated by serving a feast.

    Humans always have the softer side in them and to
    be portrayed in such vivid scenario is absolutely
    beautiful. (Report) Reply
