  • Waiting , we all wait for something,consciously or subconsciously.
    We wait for whatever the future holds for us, though we do not
    what it is.
    It is really sad to see people waiting for their family to come and
    see them and take them back home.
    Every time I meet her, she tells me that her elder sister is going
    to come the next day and take her home. She tells me her sister
    is going to get clothes and gifts for every one. She tells me the
    same thing every day,but no one comes.
    She tells me that also.
    The young boy wants to go home, every time I meet him,he tells
    me that his father is going to come that evening and take him
    home. I have never his father, it seems he come once in a while
    and takes his son for an outing . He is also old and helpless and
    has no other choice but leave his son in the care of more capable
    They are well looked after,but for most of us there is no place like
    home. It is but natural to want to go back home and be in the midst
    of people who love us.
    But, unfortunately,for many it remains only a dream, a wish unfulfilled.
    And that waiting, which never bears fruit, that is what is heart rending.
