With bitterness the grandmother sits on a hospital bed
Propped up on a defending life’s wall,
First surgery to remove kidney-stone,
To survive, gladly accepting pains of life.
She is behind all thrills of longing
And haunting for home with her shoulders
Laid for everyone who is in relation to her,
Now she is sick with stones in kidney and in gall bladder.
Now she is in painful gestures, thinking of the little one,
Her grandson, and remember how and why he puts his presence.
All her efforts and contributions in the family,
Hardly survey her pains, and she is bleeding at comfortless living.
Sitting upon hospital bed, she is in pains, and
Still remembers his small moves and smiling wonder the earth,
How those moments peer through her time of recovering,
Her little grandson gives birth to great hope to keep moving on.
