“O Naïve and innocent son! Fate has cruelly struck you,
My dear! How did this happen? Where and When?
Was it a speeding car that hit your bike?
Or a truck driver blaming a blind spot,
A jaywalker, perhaps, whom you were trying to avoid,
Could it be someone, envious of your success?
I can’t see you suffer my son,
My heart throbs as I stand beside you,
Searching for answers,
Pleading for your eyes to open.”
And he opened his eyes for a few fortunate moments…
“Please forgive me Ma, this one time,
The evil in me had got lured to drugs ,
And trust me Ma, it was just this once,
I promise to never repeat it again.”
And he closed his eyes forever……
Tears gushed out of his mother’s eyes….
“I wish I could rewind time, my son,
It could have been just once,
But it costed you your life,
And you are gone forever………”
