Challenge 15 - Behind depression

Challenge 15 - Behind depression

I held you to my heart through the night
I put you to bed and tucked you tight
I held your little finger and watched you rock
I helped you as you struggled with your sock

I watched you grow with immense pride
I washed your wounds and taught you to ride
I held your hand when you thought you were alone
I nurtured your dream and thrilled that you had grown

I smiled as you spread your wings and soared high
I watched you succeed and heaved a big sigh
I did my bit of caring for you my little one
Maybe now I can rest since it is your turn

Your dreams, you did chase and grew out of me
But I wanted to be there for you as I will forever be
When I thought you would look at me, you looked through
But have I not lived alone for the fear of losing you?

And you did forget your ma waiting for you
Slowly all color ceased from my life save the blue
Days blurred into night and then into days
As waiting became unbearable in so many ways

I looked through the window hoping to see your face
Through long winter nights and warm summer days
I was worried I would fall asleep when you arrived
And hence chose not to sleep even after I cried

Slowly the loneliness became my only friend
I stopped watching the road and over the bend
Resigned to the fact that you would not come
And that my house can never be a home

Tranquilizers soon replaced my snacks
Sedatives soon filled my cupboard racks
Depression came along with crashing reality
Until death seemed to be the only finality

Now I stand here by my own grave, watching you cry
Still my fingers itch to wipe your face dry
You probably don''t realize this yet my little one
That I will always be by you, despite all you have done

Generally there is a pressure beyond endurance that causes mental depression... I''m trying to portray one of those through this story... I don''t know if it qualifies for the challenge but nevertheless....
