She worries about me!
'After the viral flu darling
I get hiccups frequently
and doctor says 'dehydration'
also diagnosed 'pellagra'
prescribed some multivitamins and a cream.
If you are here everything is o.k.
I am really fed up of medicines and worried about you.
Do you have a rest after work
good sleep, food and happiness
I know that you struggle for us.
How long we have to suffer and survive
of this irresistible punishment?
Take care of your health
and don't take much sweets
I don't believe that you stopped smoking.
Do random check-ups for diabetes.
One way I have a little solace my naughty boy
I know that mermaids live in deep sea
and they never come ashore.'

I wonder if this poem is written about your mother? It certainly has all the hallmarks of maternal affection and devotion. 'I know that mermaids live in deep sea and they never come ashore.' but I'm sure you'll go on dreaming. My Jerry is thrilled with your dedication, Nimal. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
What an original title! A loving tribute to the very special lady in your life. She seems to be a very vivid and attractive person. You are blessed by her warm concern. Take care, Nimal. Kind regards, Sandra
