Separation

Enervated little child could not guess from her tender mind about where has she gone? She wonders and looked around later there was a continues cry looking at the dad. Poor dad didn’t utter a word but pat tenderly on her back How can he explain the real mystery? Mum has depart from the little family having a divorce Before that there was unaffordable patience Suspicions, quarrels, disagreements and arguments Can she realize the dissension between them? Little one cried for want of mum Dad exhausted, and put a glance at the couple of sun birds making a melodious note Resting on a fully blossomed branch of hibiscus bush He murmured affectingly to the baby in a perceptive manner Look! Nice little birds… calling you, Would you like to go their nest? It is beautiful, neat, and peaceful, Ostracized little girl did not realize what father says And she cried and cried Poor man looked at the cloudy sky Where floating a lonely kite Jayaratne Weerakkody
