Dear Son…

Standard

 

Happy Birthday to you, my dear one

You are mine, my dearest, my own!

 

The day we first met in the outside world,

I knew this was indeed very special

I felt something which no mother would have felt

I knew you would grow me into a mother, child!!!

 

Thank you, dear one, for being my son,

You are mine, my own, my life-time blessing!

 

-your mother!

 

Pardah!

Standard

PARDAH! The veil’s other side..

The black robe covers  her from top to bottom

Behind which is  hidden an entire woman

It shows not even an inch of her skin,

Not the  smile, the laughter, her mind

It veils like iron, shielding her from every man,

The colour of her hair, her skin, her lips, her heart

What still shows is those pair of eyes, filled all the time

A mystery which kills men, struggling to tear the veil

Had it only not been so mystical, her beauty no secret,

She  would have been so much safer, like so many other woman around!

Real Reflections

Standard

 I looked at myself, every now and then,

Into that mirror, as a child

I realised those  were the eys of my parents,

I always found myself very lovely and sweet.

I looked at myself every now and then,

Into that mirror, as a young girl,

I realised those were the eyes of my friends,

I always found myself lovable and cheerful

I looked at myself , every now and then,

Into that mirror, as a woman

I realised those were the eyes of my man

I always found myself adorable and beautiful

I look at myself every now and then,

Into that mirror; as a mother

I realise these are the eyes of my children

I always find myself strong and unyielding!
