Dr.V.K. Kanniappan (17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
Hurried Deep Sighs Only Are Arising!
My husband leaving so briskly - to earn money,
In my heart which desires to go behind him,
Hurried deep sighs only are arising
from my chest unnecessarily!
The husband is going to earn money
by travelling across the sea;
And he can’t take his wife
who can’t bear all the hardships!
