Indira Renganathan


Alankar(Decor) -164


Life can't be soft always- with woes too oft
So strived a couple in love and despair
With kids to be raised to a level fair
Hardships they faced- supportive hers was lot
She chose to teaching and worked hard aloft

Poverty was scared of her- she was not
Noted she grew helping her spouse a lot
Grown sons settled abroad she lived with them
Sometimes now back here as a fresh anthem
She came- an angel from heaven a lot
