What a life it had been few years ago…
when he ran happily with his kids near the sea shore.
His legs have now turned numb…
a Paralysis that changed his fate that day at once.
He was broken and lost when he couldn’t move or speak…
the echo of family’s sobs made him more distressed and weak.
Even the doctor’s had given up all the belief and so did he...
but his family had this strong hope of his quick recovery.
Every day was a challenge, faced with another defeated effort…
but the smiles on innocent kid’s face stopped him from being shattered.
By God’s grace and support of his wife, kids, sisters and mum…
he regained his speech in few months.
He sheds tears now as he is being carried to the wheelchair...
his family has borne the pain along with him; still showering him with so much care.
He sits there with unruffled emotions on his face…
as he flips through the family album at a slow pace.
Every click has an associated past…
he coyly smiles for a moment last.
For he now hopes that happiness will come his way …
his Family’s Love and blessings will make him walk on his feet sooner one day.
