The Tears



At the stroke of midnight
She was lying in agony.
Husband stood there helpless.
Four masked people surrounded with weapons.
One of them came between her legs, holding a sharp tool.
She screamed. Tears rolled down.
He reached for her womb and
Pulled him out…
She smiled feebly.
Baby cried…  'Its a Boy!'
Happy Tears.
