A daughter’s tale

Cupping her hands for warmth,

The winters here, were,

Unlike in her mother’s place,

Reminiscing the good old days,

When a hot cuppa would,

Materialise at her every beck and call,

A tiny waft of wind,

A bird’s call somewhere,

A warm fragrance from somebody’s kitchen,

A vaguely familiar face,

Would bring memories from the place where she once lived,

Called her home,

A change in identity,

Leading to a change in address,

From a darling daughter,

To her beloved’s wife,

She was,

Clinging onto anything,

That she could get hold of,

That’d bring back memories of a home where she once stayed,

That’d bring back memories of the people she once took for granted.

  1. Yes. The image does give a vibe of desperately holding on to something. I wonder if marriage continues to be a huge transition now – what with girls moving to college hostels, PG digs, live-in arrangements before a marital home.

    1. Ma’am , I feel in PGs you are surrounded by your friends, whereas in a marriage the spouse, their family may/ may not, be known to you, so you’ll have to be careful and responsible. So even though marriage isn’t a huge transition now, with it comes responsibility also. The young and carefree days takes a different path. 🙂
