The Empty Nest Syndrome

She, the younger one Continuously Chirping and tweeting The nest Otherwise sombre Coming to life Because of her With time Her wings gather strength Flap and flutter Now, mother’s pride The daughter Almost ready to fly out But not so easy Both counter Bottled emotions Sobs…not so loud Nervousness descends She may be ready to fend For herself Chalking out Her own trajectory Grown up, independent and free Separation- too painful The bond Too strong a pull What to do? The stay behind Mom Has to face The empty nest syndrome
