Dear Child,
As you march in
Far soon
It’s a circle
Give pain you get pains
Give rain you get rains
Give love you get loves
This is life in poetry.

I have drank from the bowls of life
The tastes are in my tales
You will come have them
Purely shall I can split them
Into your fresh ear.

I don’t want me to be
“Daddy is coming, run to mum”
My love is for you
Vast and pure you will have it.

Hey child
This love; You will yearn for it
Be careful as you will run through
Forest of love in search
And I pray may me and mum
Leave you a proof.

It’s beginning is fun
You will soar into every childhood clouds; Honey they are
Glide gently into Adulthood clouds; Puzzles they are
Be a star that Illuminate smiles
On every dark face.

Dear child
I can’t wait to love you
My palms are itching
Come peaceful I shall embrace.
