Mother in old age home , wants her son to be happy!
(I had read this story long back but was reminded about it be the facebook post of my friend Mohan Krishnaswamy. Thanks to him)
There was small family in our country,
Consisting of father, mother and son.
The son married a girl he liked and brought home,
Unfortunately the father did not live long and died.
Because the son and his were employed and had a son,
And they found that is difficult to look after their old mother,
And put her in an old age home which was not very costly,
And every monththe son used to visit his mother, for looking after her.
One day the old age home people sent word to the son ,
That his mother is in her death bed and wanted to meet him.
The son dutifully went to meet his mother and he asked her,
“Can I do something at this stage to make you happy?”
She replied” There are no fans in this home and for several nights,
I had not been able to sleep due to Mosquito bites,
And most of the days they used to give spoiled food , which was difficult to eat,
Would you be able to give them fans in each room and a refrigerator?”
The son was wonderstuck and asked her ,”Ma , why this request,
At this time , when they both would not be helpful to you?”
Mother replied “I got accustomed to mosquito bytes and spoiled food,
But i wanted you , when sent by your son here, not to suffer like me.”
