hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

I read story


I read a story and admired
The spirit behind it and stared
Why was it lacking real spirit?
Why was husband looking unfit?

I got no answer to query
I felt sad and so sorry
It added more to worry
It was adding more loads to carry

After years of marriage
If we fail to read out holy page
And translate it into action
We got to be prepared for loose face and reaction

Whatever may happen at anytime?
Marriage has to be kept intact all the times
It is not the wife alone but children
They expect no break up all of sudden

It is no good to think at last time
When enough water has flowed before time
Only fortunate couples survive the onslaught
Otherwise life is bitterly fought

Female always sacrifices
To fulfill her promises
It is male part that errs
And later on runs away or fears

Only one lesson can be drawn
No patience should be lost or withdrawn
God is kind enough to grant wisdom
Such incidences do occur but wracks relation seldom
