Just Unconscious!


I just collapse down,
After taking a medicine.

Full of darkness surrounded me
Heaviness closed my eyes.
Irritating sound covered all over my head.
But can listen to all
Surrounding me
I thought I will never get up
My mothers cries, worried me much.
Neighbours panicked voice I could hear
I lay there for half an hour
Many tried different remedies on me,
All I could feel.

Next I remember I was in hospital.
Doctors asking
Did she had anything?
If I could open my eyes and tell
I could hear everything.
Darkness all around
A horrible sound running in my head
Heaviness of my eyelids
I felt so helpless.
I lay there as good as lifeless.
If I could tell my crying mother
That I am Ok.
Helplessness laid me like dead.
I felt I will never open my eyes
May be the death knocked my door.
I thought if its God's will
I am ready for it.
Few hours later
I opened my eyes
My mother was crying bitterly
Smiled returned on her face
Her kisses showered me were of love and concern.
My mother words were very often
Don't go ever before me.

How to forget those painful moments
I was surrounded by doctor
And dear neighbours,
Who waited for me to open my eyes.
A word of thanks is not enough
But I can pray for them.
May be their pryers have
Brought me back.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
