I was locked inside my house and just then, got separated from my beloved spouse.
The world says, the relationship is unreal but, how can the nature be so cruel?
It took me away, away from him. Since then, my life has become dim!
The moment I realized, he is losing his consciousness, I ran out of my house just to save him.
I did not know what to do, I kept praying to find a doctor to save his life,
After all, I was his artificial wife.
I left no stone un-turned to look for a medicine for him,
But, all my attempts went in vain. I can’t express, my heart was in deep pain!
Since then, I am living my life without him,
I look normal on the outside but, on the inside my heart screams!
He sometimes visits me in my dreams!
I once in a while, check his heartbeat, to make sure, I haven’t lost him forever,
To lose him at such a crucial time, I’d thought never!
His heart is still beating, though he can’t accompany me in my walks of life,
I miss him a lot, after all, I am his artificial wife.
I do not know, when he’d come back to life!
The thought of losing him is like someone piercing my heart with a knife.
The doctors are unavailable right now and he’s on his bed waiting for things to become fine,
The day he’s back on his feet, with him, I’d dine!
Until then, I would keep missing this beautiful creation,
When he was alive, I’ve never showered him with appreciation.
How selfish are we humans, taking everything for granted,
When he was alright, I have always just ranted.
I now know your worth,
Waiting for your new birth.
Dear Phone, for you I mourn!
