This picture depicts our moment of greatest achievement…the moment we were born as Parents to our little girl….!
Here is a poem , I wrote for my darling daughter , when she was two years old.. She will complete four years in the month of February… :
TO OUR DAUGHTER.. (The Greatest Achievement of our lives )
A few years we waited for you ,
a part of all our prayers ;
We wanted a family member new –
a ‘little’ somebody , our joys to share !
Life had been beautiful before…
We spent cheerful times together .
But you brought in happiness more..
like the warm ‘sun’ , in a cold weather !
Your loud cries ,and hungry mouth
Kept me awake throughout the night ;
But , all the stress and fatigue , no doubt ..
vanished at your ‘beautiful’ sight !
My next wait was over when ,
you turned around , for the first time..
My pride and anxiety have since then ..
only increased from time to time !
When you took , your first few fumbling steps ,
in my heart ,far in the depths …
There was a constant, lingering fear –
‘My baby was on her own from here !’
Today as you learn to speak ,
and run around from tree to tree ;
I feel proud of you my little doll ..
our most precious asset , of all !
Tomorrow is unseen ,untold ..
But I pray to you , oh Lord !
Be there to guide my little angel ..
and protect her from every danger !
For , in her body..
beats my heart ;
and of me…
she is a ‘valuable’ part !
