My Stepsister LeavesMature

My Stepsister Leaves

The following morning,

Did my stepsister leave,

This departure as before,

Cost me many tears.


I sat on the bed,

My legs involuntarily trembling,

And Semanti,

She told me not to be upset.


Though initially I missed,

Her presence beside me,

When asleep at night,

And glancing at her place,

At the table,

Caused tears to rise initially,

For Dad and Aunt Premala's sake,

Did I control myself.


They dealt with this,

The correct way,

Leaving me,

To compose myself,

Unlike my aunt and gran,

Who had been judgemental.

The End
