To Sona...from Maa

This week, one fine morning my daughter reminded me of Wednesday to be her gym day in her school...That rang the bell in my mind...OMG tomorrow is Thursday and it is time to publish my post...I was perplexed on what to post this time, lots of ideas were going through my mind...

Finally I decided to write something on my sweetest little girl who will be turning 6 in next few weeks. I hope you will enjoy this...

They wrapped her in a blanket with pink and blue stripe
They called her a munchkin; my heart said she’s mine

Like a sweet rose bud with beauty folded deep
My heart melted as I saw her and tears slowly sneaked

I hold her tight and put close to my heart
She opened her eyes with twinkling star

I called her with the sweetest names, till I lost their count
And sang her the merry tunes as the sun went down

She was my doll, the best one I ever had
I changed and dressed her many times without any fret

I cheered for the tiny tooth that brightened her smile
My eyes closed with fear when she took her first ride

I played hide and seek with her on sunny afternoons
She always said I am in a closet Maa, come and find me soon

I waited with a pounding heart to pick her from school
She came with smiles and hugs and said it’s all cool

I can’t believe there will be six candles on her cake
It still feels like yesterday, when she was in my arms wide awake.
