Separated in time…

It is extremely hard to be away from your family in another time zone when they are unwell…

How was your night, I do not know

For me the afternoon hours pass slow

I wait impatiently for your dawn to break

I check time obsessively trying hard to shake

The all-pervading anxiety as I try to maintain

A regular evening schedule, suppressing the pain

Borne out of anger and helplessness

I cannot be with you in this time of distress

I fervently pray that you wake up feeling well

Physically though in another time zone I dwell

Right now the time difference unbearable appears

Without constant communication, the worst I fear

I know I must not interrupt your sleep at any cost

For recuperation, hours of sleep must not be lost


I check WhatsApp, it seems you are awake now

With nervous anticipation, I now allow

Myself to make a call, hope you answer right away

Give me positive news, my anxiety allay
