I met a number of people one day,
They were from different ages, castes & race,
Had I understood what their eyes had spoken,
I would have realized that they had their hearts broken.
A young girl she was with a brother younger to her,
Their dearest mother was battling the deadly cancer,
The harsh shattering truth they were unable to believe,
That she had just about 6 months more to live.
He was a teenage boy living with only his dad,
But now the father, a heart stroke he had,
Traumatized the boy is with simply the thought,
That he may be about to lose the only parent he had got.
A woman awaiting her husband at night,
Got a call that shattered her entire life,
Her husband got killed in an accident to his car,
Due to another driver who was under the influence of alcohol.
A man was struggling with some inexpressible emotion,
His wife had just died during child birth,
He had to hide his pain & bring up their kid on his own,
Without letting the child ever feel the absence of her mom.
Her brother was her hero, in him she had full faith,
He got killed while trying to save some strangers from death,
She has to steady herself her parents need care,
She needs to wipe her tears & for their sake be there.
The police came to his door one day,
He had to identify the body of his sister, who was raped,
It filled his heart with contempt & hate for those monsters,
Who dared to harm his beloved sister.
Her heart was full of anguish, her eyes filled to the brim,
A miscarriage had ended her motherhood dream,
Her husband was also numb with intense grief,
Their kid had died before it could even begin to live.
She was in shock, her heart was in turmoil,
Her best friend out of helplessness had committed suicide,
She had lost her confidant, her soul mate,
Separated they were forever by death.
So many broken souls I met one day,
They all had feelings no matter what their age, caste or race,
I wish I could not have read what their eyes spoke so far,
Atleast their pain would not have broken my heart!
