Well Remembered A Heartbroken Mother's Grief - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

A courageous but disturbed poor mother has brought her daughter
A ragged doll with sunken eyes.
It's a birthday gift picked from a garbage bin
Beside a wealthy house in the town.
Oh! She cried secretly like a turtledove's cooing.

I dedicate this poem for Happy Father's day.
