Don’t know if our trip to Mumbai was a good thing,
Benefits of which it has still to bring,

However in the meanwhile she sure is drowsy,
Her alertness all gone which is lousy,

I don’t like this pause in her progress,
It only adds to my stress,

When will she settle in with her new medication?
When will she surge ahead in her rehabilitation?

I know her mind is rife with playfulness,
Glimpses of which surface above the drowsiness,

Oh how I wish they tone down her dose,
So that her lethargy all goes,
So that the twinkle is back in her eye,
And once again she flutters like a butterfly…
