Essence of life

Essence of  life

Everyday I see 
A  small sparrow
In a nest 
Swinging  on a branch
Of my garden tree
With little ones
Chirping playing 
Feeling safe with their mother 
Open up their little beaks 
Small sparrow fills them with food 
What she brought was from far
For her little ones
Day by day
Nest became smaller and smaller 
And the children grew up
One gloomy day I saw 
Sitting quietly, their caretaker 
Small sparrow 
On the branch of the tree 
Grown up those little ones 
Flew away 
Nest was quiet 
No chirping sound 
Of the little ones 
Now she is left alone
This is the essence of every life
This is the essence of every life
