Sorry

Sorry
Sorry to that mother,
Who lost her blessing,
On our delivery beds,
Who bled to death,
Under our vigil watch,
Who lost her womb,
For reasons we could not avoid

Sorry to that man,
Who lost his hope,
 Of beating cancer,
Whose liver ,
We had to remove,
Who lost his limb
For reasons we could not avoid

Sorry to that girl,
Who lost her smile,
On moving a mile,
Whose bright eyes,
We had to transplant,
Who lost her lips,
For reasons we could not avoid

Sorry to that boy,
Who lost his fingers,
Because of jiggers,
Whose ability to eat ,
Was snuffed away,
Who lost his ,
For reasons we could not avoid

Sorry to all ye people,
Who lost their faith,
In life itself,
Who in the course of our remedy,
Never came out the same again,
Who lost faith in us,
For reasons we could not avoid.
