- The Parting
Poetry is more of the heart,
Very pained i feel today,
For the stray puppy, I saw in search,
His mother nowhere to be seen,
Ohh the silent cries he moaned,
Piercing every pore of my heart,
The bread crumbs That I placed,
The puppy, looked at them, and
In a silent sad face,
Sat down a little away,
I remembered the day,
Not so far away,
This same puppy had taken,
The bread crumbs of mother's share,
The mother too had silently stood,
Sacrificing her palette.
I stared at the eyes of the puppy, today,
The moistness in them had said,
All that can not be said.
I knew he would not be eating,
A single morsel today.
