Promises

a poem by Raghunandan Ram, India


Frocks & shirts of
Small teddy bear’s sizes,
Lying in the trunk
Seen when opened,
Remind the promises
Made to self;
To repay & obey
The parents,
What they did
But forgot
Being involved in
Family of my own.
Parents are gone
But the heart still aches,
For vacuum of Promises.
From chocolates & sweets,
Fruits & colourful dresses,
Bought out of day’s wages;
Payment of tuition fees,
Efforts to fulfill all wishes.
And from their cares &
Blessings before examinations,
I learnt to repeat the same
But the heart still aches
For the vacuum of Promises
To repay & obey
The parents .
