LESS THAN A SECOND...

Poetry By: Pratibha
Young adult



Day before yesterday, I lost my son, kriish, for a complete 5 minutes outside Dufferin Mall in Toronto, Canada. There was a huge rush outside WALMART and I got carried away by the Feng Shui display outside WAL-MART...It was 100% my mistake and carelessness that I did not notice that he is not there with me.When I looked down and did not find him, i called out his name, he did not respond...Then, i knew what i have done...I could have killed myself if something would have happened to the poor kid because of my selfishness...I CAN NEVER NEVER FORGIVE MYSELF FOR WHAT I DID...this is my plea to all those wonderful mothers out there, not to leave their kids hands at any cost...learn from my mistake...learn from my experience...Anything could have happened..Any Psycho could have picked him up...Kriish would have been kidnapped forever...I would have lost him forever...he would have suffered at the hands of a pedophiliac...What was the guarantee that the worst would not have happened !! And all this because of ME...I was responsible for this...I was...Being a Mother is not a child's play...GOD has created Mothers to protect tiny creatures from all harm...MAY GOD FORGIVE ME FOR THIS CRIME...this was CRIME and I want to share this experience with all of you so that no kid should ever get lost...Please help a lost kid...Don't take the kid away from that spot...Just pick up and stand there at "THE SAME SPOT"...his parents will come there...They will be searching there only...Encourage him to call out your name...PLEASE DO NOT TURN YOUR BACK AND GO AWAY...PLEASE HELP A LOST CHILD...PLEASE HELP HIM FIND HIS MAMA AND PAPA...HE DOESNOT DESERVE TO SUFFER...HE NEEDS US...

HONESTLY I DON'T BLAME ANYBODY THERE IN THE MALL....WHY SHOULD ANYONE ELSE be RESPONSIBLE FOR MY CARELESSNESS??

One second:
One second...
That's all...
I am finished...
My world is gone...
My son is lost...
My life is gone...
He was here, was here with me...
Tiny warm fingers in my hands...
Suddenly, realisation dawned on me that...
He is gone...
No fingers in my hands...
His smiling face lost...
I lost him...Oh God! I lost him...
Lost him forever...
What if, he is kidnapped??
What if, he is ..........??
Could not think...Don't want to think...Why should I think negative?
But...But ...But...now what?
Where is my son?
For that moment...Everything STOPPED...
Wind stopped blowing...Birds stopped chirping...
Bees stopped humming...Rain stopped pouring...
Life stopped...My heart stopped...My soul died...
I can't hear...I can't think...What's happening??
Why am I sweating so much? What's this gripping pain in my chest?
No, Never...I cannot let this happen to me...I have to stand up...
Ihave to get up and gather myself...My son needs me...My son is in trouble...
He is lost...He is searching for me...Yes, listen carefully, he is calling for me...
I have to search for him...I cannot afford to lose him...
Somebody please help...
Please help...please...please listen to this mom...
He is small, he is innocent, he is flawless, he is kriish, he is my son...
MY SON...Please, listen, he is MY SON...
My Kriish, my world, my universe, my life...
GOD take my life, punish me hard,
Punish me...I am responsible for this...
I am responsible, GOD...
I am...
I was careless; I forgot to hold his tiny hands tight...
I ignored his plea to go to toy shop...
He got bored and wandered off...
GOD please, please forgive me...
Please give kriish back...Just this one time...
Give him strength...Give him comfort...
"Kriish, Kriish, kriish....
Where are you, honey? Where are you sweetheart?
Come to mama...Come to me...Mama is half dead...
Mama is sorry...Mama is sorry to leave your hands...
Forgive me my son; forgive your mama for being selfish...
Please come out...Mama is calling you...
Ask for help, sonny, ask for help...Cry out "MAMA"...
I will hear you...I will help you..."
No sound, no noise, people walking past me...
Nobody is bothered...Nobody cared...
Nobody tried to search...
Nobody helped little kriish...
Nobody helped his mama...
What if it was their child? What if it was their loved one?
What if...??
Kriish, don't worry, Mama will come...
Mama will find you...GOD is there with us...
You are GOD's child...be strong my son...
GOD will help Mama find you...
Suddenly...I heard him...
I heard my son...I heard my kriish crying...
Crying out "Mama, Mama"...
"Mama, where are you?" "Mama, I am lost."...
"Mmmm....aaaa....mmmm.....aaaa"... "Mama I am scared."...
I ran towards the call...Towards kriish, towards my life...
Towards my love...Towards Light...Towards faith...
Towards GOD...towards confidence...
This is kriish's cry...This has to be MY SON...
THIS IS MY SON...
There he is...
Standing terrified amidst a sea of people who are not bothered...
Standing alone with lots of tears rolling down his cheeks...
Crying out loudly...Crying out for help...
"Somebody help me find my Mama..."
Nobody picked him up to help...Nobody comforted him...
Nobody tried to make him stop crying...
GOD made me hear his innocence, his cry, his plea...
"It's okay...Mama is here...Come to me..."
Tears did not stop and we hugged each other as if there was no tomorrow...
Sun came out bright and smiling...
Flowers kissed his soft cheeks...
Dew drops like tears rolled down his cheeks and I hugged him even tighter...
Mama loves you more than her life...
Mama is alive for you...for only YOU...
If you are gone...I am gone...I am dead...I will not live...
Don't want to see anything else...Except YOU and ONLY YOU...
Forgive me GOD...YOU gave kriish in my lap and I took motherhood for granted...
GOD
...Please forgive me...
...Please give me the insight to do things right
...Give me the wisdom to think straight...
...Please give me the strength to be a strong and RESPONSIBLE MOM...
THANK YOU GOD...THANKS FOR GIVING MY KRIISH BACK to Me...
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO THIS MOM...
THANKS FOR MAKING ME REALISE THAT ONE SECOND IS ENOUGH TO CHANGE THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN....
