From Sapling to a Tree

From Sapling to a Tree

1 min 417 1 min 417

The moment I was born 

Your world came to a standstill

Veils of darkness were torn

Revealing that jukebox of delight

Playing melodies, sober and light


As my supple lips curled in a smile,

Innocent yet divine

Your worries got dusted off of your shoulders:

The mere thought of it 

Sends chills down my spine


From my first step to driving a car

You taught me, "nothing in this world is unattainable or bizarre"

And when I got my first cut, now a scar,

"It is part of growing up, my child!"

Oh! How my fears vanquished, turned mild.


Curiosity struck open the doors 

To learn things, new and old 

You never let any obstacle 

Weigh down my shoulder

Imbibing every lesson in life,

I turned to be cautious yet bolder.


You never let agony overpower the calm within

I turned oblivious to your anxieties

When adolescence transformed my skin

My petty mistakes and regrets 

Cost you your peace and good health


You refused to give up on me

Swore to make me independent and carefree

When I seemed to fumble or fall 

You were ready to catch me 


I fail to imagine a life 

Without you or your wishes 

I am blessed to be bestowed 

With you as my parents.
