Salaam O Little Angel

Two orphan girl-angels ill-affected, Got admitted in a Corona- Ward; Joy and Jay, like no one's pets, dejected, Surrendered, like old nuns, wholly to God... Their pains to minimize the doctors tried, Though each doctor had thousands to attend; Like fish without water Joy and Jay throbbed, Like mariners, each flaw, doctors did mend... It's at night Joy saw Jay growing breathless, No oxygen left; like a corpse, she lay; She cried; none around to assist; helpless, Dared to fix her own oxygen on Jay... When the crew had found Joy alive no more, And her Oxygen mask on Jay well fixed; They wept, as though they'd lost a warrior, And ensured that in Jay, Joy ever lived. 01 June 2021
