Suman Kumar Das
I beg you, Mom!
A piece of sandwich,
Baked in your kitchen oven
Not in some food factory.
A glass of water I beg,
Not a bottle of branded drink.
For your magic hands
Bring a heavenly savour
Enough to quench hunger, thirst.
I beg you, Dad!
Out of your busy hours
Few minutes to play with me
Not long days for world trip.
One or two coins I beg,
Not a bunch of plastic perks.
For your love and affection
Fills the highest pleasure
More than all needs.
O’ my dear parents!
It has been sixteen summers
Spent lonely in hostel
Bereft of your jocund company
That bliss I beg today.
