Knock..Knock

Knock..Knock

Dressed in red saree with vermilion on her hair parting

just like a new bride, she was looking pretty and charming

The matching jewellery added to her beauty and radiance

The delicate mehndi motifs on her hand made her all the more gracious

Her pooja thali was ready and she as eagerly waiting for the moon to show up    so that she could break her karva chauth fast

She was celebrating this day alone since three years past

She would fast and looking at her husband's photo drink the first sip of water

For her faith and patience, the stars in the sky would applaud her

Her husband was a Jawan in the Indian Armed Forces

and was missing as per reports from sources

As the moon peeped from behind the clouds, she got ready to open her fast

Suddenly she heard a sound

"Knock..knock" 

"Who could it be?" she thought to herself and rushed to open the door

To see her husband at the door she was shocked

Tears streamed down her cheeks and she sat on her knees 

and thanked the Almighty for sending her husband home sound and safe

This time she opened her fast looking at his face.
