Sitting on a window sill
She waits and waits
For a phone call
Or for them to come online
Just to hear their voice
Or to see their pretty faces
Waiting with a heart ache
She remembers how once
They made her day
How once she felt that
she had not enough time
To care for them
How she fed and pampered them
Loved them with all her heart
Now they are living successful lives
in some distant land
Now no one bangs the door
No one messes the room
No one to make that noise
No one fights those silly fights
No one sleeps on those beds
No one says “Good night ,Mom” to her
She waits and waits for their return
At least to lay her to rest 
in her grave……
