The Image

The images on mind may stay
That shall never go away
As those events were closely associated
Right from childhood till ate and fully related

I had shifted to city side
The ancestral home was divided
No one took care and it remained unused
Even children did not like to stay there and refused

Sometimes later I dropped in to visit
From outside it looked deserted site
I felt tremendous pain and grieved
I felt bad and eyes could not be believed

It was in total shamble
Some years ago it was considered to be temple
A place to live in with pride
I saw it in horrible condition after it was divided

I opened the door to see the horrible condition
It reminded me of close relation
So much warmth of childhood days
Where I had honor to stay

Parents were too good to afford
Yet they did all they could do to provide good food
I was given best education
They wanted to see me in good position

Even though it was in dilapidated condition
I felt their kindness with each inhalation
I breathed with close feeling and happiness
I could think of home with satisfaction on face
