She was happy,
so she smiled.
For she was finally with,
the love of her life.
That’s when the confusion ensued,
for how dare she!
How dare she didn’t look shy or really cried.
That invited more perusal,
since she had a spirit, untameably wild.
Enraged for they thought
she didn’t love her past.
If only they knew,
She holds them dearly to her heart,
and will do so till she breathes her last.
But she refused to pretend to please.
It confused them more and put them at unease.
They were dunce, ‘cos her love
for her kin were unfathomable.
But yet they tried to number and scale,
the thing that was not measurable.
You don’t know the tears she shed,
especially when everyone left.
You only saw what she had let you see,
since she keeps her space trial-free.
That’s why she smiled when she wanted,
and cried in solitary.
She didn’t heed the approval,
she knew surmises are dreary.
Now she looks forward to her life,
with an unabashed hope and some spice,
So, yes please, sit back and continue to munch on.
She’ll see you shortly, smile politely,
and then with her life, stride on.

As a mother, Neha had always been there for her daughter. Why couldn't her daughter be there for her when Neha needed someone to talk to?
Neha was having severe problems with her periods. Her periods were highly irregular.
Once they had stopped altogether for 8 months after a long period of three years of hot flashes, and she was hopeful that her menopause had arrived. But presumably not so! She had heavier than usual period soon after.
These intermittent on-and-off intervals of period puzzled her a lot. Not that she hadn’t shown to the gynaecologists, but the prolonged period of menopause was very irritating and difficult.
