The Pang of Separation

He got the desired job
Everyone Merry and happy. 
Congratulations arrived in plenty
And friends demanding treats. 

I too am happy, 
Yet apprehending the separation
feeling choking, suppressing the emotions. 
Dreading to meet his bright eyes
In fear of crying before him. 

He will go away to his work place
The house will be silent and
activities will lessen.

Who will pester for tasty items
I will miss his sweet irritations. 
How I longed for his good life 
And when he achieved, why I am in grief?

All logic fails when it is about mother and child
Which mom wants to part 
With the darling she has brought up? 

Parents strive all life
preparing children for good life.
They spend  time money and sleepless nights. 
When their flesh and blood  is  ready to fly
The nest gets empty, and their hearts cry.
