Because she makes me happy.

I have been nursing her,
her tender frail hands move around in play,
with nothing but the stars above the cot she lies on.
The stars are always silent,though.

I have been scared,
for all of you think it's not worth it.
For all of you think,
she's not worth it.

But have you ever seen her smile?
Have you ever seen her tiny eyes crinkle at the dream only her heart knows?

I have seen.
I have seen her soft touch turn into a silent kiss,
I have seen her sleep in my arms, as an abode to the tired pilgrims.
I have heard her cry, turning into those nightmares that her mother can only wipe tears for.
I have heard you all, ask the mother-- Why?

And I have told all of you,
over and over again.
Because her baby dreams make me believe,
I was a baby,too.
Because her innocent mind made me believe,
that I needn't think so much with the mind.
and just because,
she makes me happy.

  8. @Asif: Aaaaaand you're back! Thank you so much, Asif :) Trust me, this was one of thee most random and sudden poem I just typed out. Your words are too kind :)
    Thank you!
    Oh and heyy glad you liked the new template!

    @Suruchi: Thank you so very much :) Frankly, I didn't think much about a backgroud at all. This was something that had been playing somewhere in the back of my mind which i just seuddenly typed out. But the whole point is of how a mother takes care and nurses her baby daughter even though the world says against it and tells her its not worth it-- but she doesn't budge. Cause somewhere, it reminds her what she used to be. And somewhere she knows that the baby girl makes her happy- and I guess that's pretty much the main reason we live for :)

  14. Hello Nil,

    Thank you for stopping by. Your comments mean a lot.
    Dear me, if only one could know what goes on in a little child's mind. I'm sorry I was just stuck on that thought from one of the lines in your poem,
    "Have you ever seen her tiny eyes crinkle at the dream only her heart knows.."

    Spread the love,

  15. If I wasnt in office, I would be sitting with my guitar and singing out your poem! Almost lyrical! good stuff...
