Childless - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal
He died childless
But no regret on face
Worries had no place
What if son proved useless?
Daughter proved careless
All my work could have gone fruitless
I am satisfied
With whatever I did
I shall live in memory as not dead
One great statesman said” I have jawahar* (pearl)
Think if I had another one not honhaar*(not worth)
The life would then have been bekaar*(useless)
