O my utopian child

Your puerile presence in me,
Was too short lived,
Yet to take form, yet to breathe.
I lost you too soon,
Without feeling you, I was left alone to feel
Your absence, paucity of breathing your fragrance.
You were a dream long cherished,
You were a hope long nourished,
Very notion of your baby steps,
Walking in the garden of my heart’s delight
Lit a smile on my face,
Brought a shine in my almost vacant eyes.
But it was an implausible thought,
Too illusory to be true.
Go my child, lit up the heart of some barren land.
I will wait to nurture you,
In my impending life.
I will be born for sure,
To reap the delights of your love.
