Single Mother - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

She lived alone with her
Most precious treasure,
A daughter, left by her
Beloved who changed her
For a woman with
A better face and coquettry.

She worked with her colleagues
Helped by one and everone,
She took her daughter
To school and gardens,
To zoos and amusement parks,
Denying to get married again,
Since her daughter will
Get treatment differently,
From what she wished for.
