DESPERATE - AWAIT !!! Joint Colloboration 5 with Sally by 


A Painting by : Shree & Ami(my wife)
Wonderful Words by : Sally Omar

Well this is a moment of a poor family waiting desperately together for their father who has still not returned after whole days work, where one kid is elder sister and standing behind another is younger son waiting and being impatient about their fathers uncertain returning issue back to their house. I specifically wanted to show their love, bond, respect, intimacy, curiocity, closeness, affection, feeling of insecurity, fear and a sense of worriedness, impatience and all sorts of wieard thoughts going on specially in the mind of the mother who desperately wants her husband to return back to home soon as its already too late and as both the children are hungry along with her, all of them waiting for their dad to acompany them at whatever food they have left with. Being mother of two little kids she cannot cry or show her sense of worry infront of kids but still she is infact so upset, so tensed and so curious for finding the reasons about not returning back of her husband till so late which she reflects throught her eyes and facial expressions along with managing her kids by giving them assurance that he will comeback soon.

My wife Ami helped me a lot specially for bringing those waiting expressions on the face for which i will always be grateful to her unmatched artistic skills.
All the artwork is given a sepia tone with charcoal to show the feel of my theme desperate – await, which i think goes well with the moment of impatience…enjoy.

And lastly a special thanks to Sally who did a marvellous job within no time giving a touch of liveliness to these waiting family with her wonderful words.

*A MOTHER WAITS IN DESPERATION
HER FAMILY IS VERY POOR
THERE IS VERY LITTLE TO EAT
WISHES THERE WAS MORE
SHE AND CHILDREN ARE HUNGRY
AS THEY WAIT
HE IS ALWAYS HOME ON TIME
TODAY HE IS LATE
WAITING WITH HER CHILDREN BY THE WINDOW
TO HIM HER THOUGHTS ARE SENT
SHE KEEPS WAITING
AND SHE LAMENTS

*WHERE IS MY HUSBAND….WHERE CAN HE BE
HE IS NEVER SO LATE
THE CHILDREN ARE HUNGRY
BUT WE MUST WAIT
THE FOOD IS SCARCE
NOT MUCH TO EAT
WHEN HE COMES HOME
WE WILL KISS AND GREET
I AM REALLY NERVOUS
I HOPE EVERYTHING IS GOOD
I WORRY EACH DAY
AS A WIFE SHOULD

*I MUST BE STRONG
I CANNOT LET MY CHILDREN SEE
HOW WORRIED I AM
WHERE CAN HE BE
HE’S NOT BEEN ACTING
LIKE EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT
I JUST PRAY
HE COMES HOME TONIGHT

*WE LOVE HIM SO MUCH
AND SEE HIM EACH DAY SO TIRED
THERE ARE TIMES HE COMES HOME
SO VERY WIRED
SOMETIMES HE’S ANGRY
AND I DON’T KNOW WHY
BUT I HOLD IN MY TEARS
I NEVER CRY

*MUM WHERE IS DAD
I’M REALLY HUNGRY
WE KEEP WAITING
WHERE CAN HE BE
DO YOU THINK HE STOPPED
AT THE STORE
TO BUY KHREE WE LIKE SO MUCH
LIKE HE DID BEFORE
THAT WOULD BE SO GOOD
WE LOVE WHEN WE GET SWEETS
DADDY LOVES US
SOMETIMES HE BUYS US TREATS

*MUM MY STOMACH
FEELS LIKE THERE IS A HOLE
I AM HUNGRY
AND FEEL OUT OF CONTROL
I WANT TO CRY
WHERE IS DAD
DO YOU THINK HE WILL COME HOME
DID I MAKE HIM MAD
DOES HE KNOW I LOVE HIM
DID I MAKE HIM SAD

*CHILDREN DON’T WORRY
MAYBE HE WORKED A LITTLE LATE
WE ARE STRONG
WE CAN WAIT
ALTHOUGH WE ARE HUNGRY
LET’S SAY A PRAYER
CLOSE YOUR EYES
AND HE WILL SOON BE HERE

*SILENTLY TO GOD SHE PRAYS
SO HER CHILDREN CAN’T HEAR
TO SEND HER HUSBAND SOON
SHE IS NOW LIVING IN FEAR
HER THOUGHTS ARE GOING WILD
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF HE NEVER RETURNED
HER HEART IS HEAVY
HER SOUL IS BURNING

KNOWING THAT HE LOVES THEM
AND THERE IS A TRUE BOND
SHE IS TERRIFIED
THAT HE HAS BEEN HARMED
SHAKING HER HEAD
SHE PRAYS WITH ALL HER HEART
THAT HE COME HOME
SHE AND HER CHILDREN ARE DESPERATE
