my doll

Written by: Suresh Iyer


Waiting behind the closed doors
My dearest smiles at me
My tired soul lights up again
I hold my doll with glee

‘Dolls’ for kids’, teases this world
My Doll cries or laughs with me
With it, can I ever get old

Mind filled with guilt as
I keep My Doll homebound
My Doll never complains or cribs
For me, my Doll is always around

Friends or kin come and go
Down in the dumps, I find solace
in my Doll, makes me forget my woes
