A drop of heavenly honey
absorbed by the warmth of a womb.
The sweetness gets melted by the touch of love.
Ah! An untethered soul slowly comes into being.
The fragrance of virgin emotion is filled
with a mother’s dream and a father’s pride.
Beautiful sprouting of parenthood’s desire.
The divine soul inhales the breath of their love
and smiles without knowing the unknown.
It grows and awaits with all enthusiasm
to witness the divine surreal union of dusk and dawn
to decipher the various hues of life and its beauty.
Despite, beyond the dominion of all protocols
Lay the role of karma, the tricky play of destiny.
In the itinerary, the identity of soul is lost, frozen!
Unknowingly, I know, I am a bruised bud
who may never bloom with all its beauty.
Yet I would emit the fragrance of purity and
embrace the world with all my cosmic love.
I am a special child, an unresolved puzzle.
For the obvious reasons I would be invited
by faked smiles and myriad question marks
which I may deal with all my innocence
from all the stares coming my way from the world.
Determined, I fought and fled
the dungeon of time to embrace love,
the survival instinct of life.
Neverthless least I understand
what is curse or blessing
nor the ABC of expression or emotions.
But I know for my beloved I am their life and hope
who love and care for me unconditionally
in a least way that you decipher any truism.
I am the special one bestowed with rare blessings.
I struggle to convey with my strange language I know
that one day I will reciprocate as you wish and pray
I will fill your life with love you showered untiringly
as time will resolve the puzzle you live with all the day.
Power of miracle will erase all doubts,
It is my promise I convey so innocently
Through my smiles, I deliver time to time.
