In 1958, Queen Victoria's proclamation was read,
I was learning this, when suddenly a wood fell,
On my right leg, leaving me with pain,
My mother immediately ran up, in lot of strain.
Dad was out, so uncle held my hand,
I was really hurt, not even able to stand.
Brother made me move, to my room, very slow,
Then Doctor uncle arrived, as I laid on bed, low.
Dressing was done in minutes,
My bleeding stopped in sometime,
But all were seriously worried for me,
And thanked God for my aid, done in time.
It was now two hours since,
I lay on this new style of cage,
I thought as if I was a rare species,
At whom each passer-by gazed.
A friend got to know of me, and,
She scolded me at first, then
Gave me tight instructions,
'Forget your medicines and I'll be a bane! '
Gradually I realized that,
It was all because of their care,
They all loved me a lot,
Any harm to me, they couldn't bear.
After sometime my Dad came,
He consoled me when he,
Saw tears in my eyes,
But the actual reason he couldn't see.
No one knew the reality of my tears,
They were not caused by the bleed or strain,
They rolled down my eyes because,
The love of my dear ones,
Was much bigger than the pain!
