To you my son







Its not your choice but my dreams that you are here
Your eyes tell of a million dreams that I burned
The fire in them makes me go on
The love in them and the complete trust
How do I hold it and never let go -
When I know there is a whole world waiting for you
My breasts fill with warm droplets of affection
And I can no longer see you grow
To lose innocence of faith and careless smiles
To drink in the world of deceit and untruth
Of faith that carries its own corpse
And dreams fried in heat of misdeeds

May the sky be your canvass and you draw the rainbow
Everyday to live a meaning
May the gods smile in your eyes
And the angles sing in your every word

The dried blood of an umbilical chord that screamed
A score years ago, should now whisper a song of independence
Let you be the you, a part of nothing but the universe
And not hold you back from your tomorrow

Live my son and go on
The world waits for you and your smile
I shall keep the broken wheel of a toy car
A drawing of a happy child dancing
A yo yo that is with out a string
A book of fables dog eared.

You are me and no longer me
And I am what you made me to be.

Really touching. Motherhood is difficult to express, but you paint a lyrical picture that it at once strong, warm and spiked with bittersweet tears.
