Deadly cancer

Deadly cancer

It was diagnosed as deadly cancer
 A disease now common but found with fewer
 So much progress has been made in this direction
 But patients suffer mental agony with medicine's reaction

 Mother was not feeling well since many days
 She may remain busy whole day and calmly stay
 She knew very well that she is down with disease
 confided me alone with condition not to disclose

 I was elder in the family and realized the importance
 There was no hope at all and she had bleak chance
 I feared she may be with us few more days or months
 Then may be taken over by cruel death

 Females generally suffer more with such kind of diseases
 The moment they marry their existence suddenly ceases
 They are not only seized with lots of responsibility at home
 But countered with numerous problems

 I could clearly see worry lines on her face
 But she won't allow any body to find its trace
 She will be smiling all the time and remain cheerful
 As if life was defeated and she was successful

 Such was her dominating character
 Sometimes she will make us to roar in laughter
 Forgetting all the pains caused by incurable disease
 She used to say “Life must be spent always at ease”

 I will directly look in her eyes and try to find out
 Why is she always trying to look and talk about?
 She was funny too and played with small kids
 Never failed in her duty to provide lead

 She breathed her last with complete control
 There was no panic or any kind of distress call
 She called everybody near by her bed
 Bade farewell after some hymns were heard

 She closed her eyes slowly
 left face with beautiful smile and happily
 She was not defeated till the last
 As the end came peacefully but very fast
