A writer, environmentalist, marketer and an Idealist. And mother to a cute pink nosed labrador.

A year has passed,

But the pain is same.

They say “there is nothing you could do!”

But couldn’t I?

I wonder!

She left begging me to save her life,

And all I did was beg the doctor with helpless eyes!

With her, many passed away crying for help!

As their family watched them -helpless!

Is this all I could do?

Is this all they could do?

I wonder

No funeral, no loud screaming!

Just helplessness and silent crying hearts.

This word is

Surrounded by graves of pain, anxiety and loss

Even then it’s not over.

Now I wonder who next?
