The warmth in your voice, the subtle touch of concern,
Believe us you are extraordinary, so generous, there is none.
The one who is forever there, in all our lows and highs,
Who simply stands besides us, no whats and no whys.
Your aura is blissful, your life an inspiration,
May Lord grant the best to His most humane creation
Now that you are leaving for a destination new and bright,
We have to confess we can’t say goodbye, even if you would soon be out of sight..!!
They give us boundless love and joy,
We can live our childhood once again.
Trying to govern them, is like taming the waves,
Be one of them, parenting them all the time, is in vain.
Your inner child needs to be forever alive,
That’s how you can nurture your children with grace,
Else you are just another boss, my dear,
Running in an absurd race!!
Magicians they are, if you let them be,
Children are the latest version of what you are.
Nurture these saplings with love ’cause they come through you,
Being just a nasty parent won’t take you too far.
Go smooth I told her, as she twirled in all directions,
I don’t bother, she smiled, I don’t follow any reflections.
Why go with the flow, when you can map your journey your way,
Just the dead fish do so, I am alive, will swim against all currents, if I may.
Move on, for that’s what life is all about,
Journeys are more gratifying than destinations.
Don’t be enveloped, be like the wind,
Think and reach beyond, without hesitations.
Stand tall and smile for each breath that you take,
And each day that sun rises in the sky.
For every night as the moonlight shines and stars sparkle,
There’s no reason to fret, still people do, I wonder why?
