Worth Living

Toys strewn floors,

Cars here, cars there,

Little cars everywhere.

Napkins here, chocolates there,

Colouring books, paper planes,

Building blocks, kinder joy toys,

Little crumbs of cookies everywhere.

Smell of lotions, baby powders,

Doraemon on tv, or sometimes Shinchan.

Piled up laundry, piled up books,

Scribbled bedsheets, doodled walls.

Little feet tapping, running here and there,

Sound of laughter echoes everywhere.

Voices calling Amma, all at once.

Pecks of kisses, showering on me

From little lips, now and then.

Little arms hugging me and tugging me,

They make my day- a day worth living,

Everyday.

My Star (Aski)

A one in a billion star you are-

Yes, you are – my love, my life, my heart,
My reason to live, my guiding light.
Beautiful as the star of Bethlehem
Which blossoms bright in the night.

So tiny were you, held by a single arm,
Smiling away in your dreams.
Love overflowed, my heart felt warm,
While I watched you peacefully sleep,
With tears of joy, memories to keep.

My bundle of joy, my gift from above,
From a tiny, little bud I’ve watched you grow
And blossom into a flower
A more beautiful flower there cannot be
Who walked on this earth so far.

I’ve watched you grow
Into a strong girl that I know,
You’ve softened my heart,
Taught me selfless love,
And the true meaning of love.

You will forever be my brightest star
Who will shine even in the darkest of hour,
And give me strength when I am weak,
And hope, when I am meek-
You- my daughter, you- my life, my star.

Why?

Why should I be blamed for each and everything?

Why should I be the one to make sacrifices?

Why should I be the only one who says sorry every time? Sorry

even for each and every wrong you do!

Do you remember the last time you said sorry?

Or maybe just say yes, it was my fault? Do you?
