From Mother To Daughter
From Mother To Daughter1 min 274 1 min 274
When I first saw you like a tiny dot on the screen,
The first sign of life, your invisible heart pulsating,
My heart leaped with joy.
When I felt your first kick in my abdomen,
Your playful movement inside me,
I felt pleasure, not pain
When you came into this world
And I heard your first cry
I forgot all the agony I went through
When you gave your first social smile
Your tiny lips separating like rose petals
Flowers bloomed in my heart
You took your first step
Fumbling while trying to balance on your tiny feet
My heart skipped a beat.
As I rushed to hold you in my arms
My foot twisted, but I could not let you get hurt
Oblivious of my pain, I reached you.
Now, you are a grown up girl,
But still you are my little darling
When I see you trotting around
My heart leaps with joy
When I see you enjoying and having fun
I feel the same pleasure
No matter how severe, my aches and pains vanish
When I see you in pain
When you fumble on any step in life'
My heart skips a beat
But trust me my child,
I will not let you fall ever
Despite any twists or turns I might face
You just need to have the same faith in me
As you had as a child.
