89.Old woman's concern

How can I die
Leaving him alone
To face ignominy ?

Who will comfort him
When his wishes are crushed
By the ones he loved ?

Who will keep alive
His faith in himself
When rejected by his own ?

Who will hug him
When he feels helpless,
Defenceless and vulnerable ?

Who will give him shoulder
When his pent up misery
Flows out as tears ?

No, I can't be selfish,
He has to die
Before I can leave.

Very true especially in Indian perspective. Here women are very 'protective' towards their men! But men have normally been found to be 'Bewafa'!
