my darling, my angel!
a piece of body, a piece of my soul,
my lovely daughter!
how I want to see you happy....
I want to give you everything, I wished, wanted for myself
the perfect bliss, the perfect knowledge, the perfect life
I am scared you will make...mistakes I made,
I want to shield, protect, take you in my arms and hide
you are so precious, so vulnerable...I hug you tightly, you feel uncomfortable
you want to break free, I tighten my embrace,
you scream...let me go..give me my space
I am hurt...
am I transgressing, is that not my right, to nurture, to shade you from sunlight!
I recoil... the very shade hath you wilting,
stunned....I blame, disapprove, push back.
your accusing eyes make me crack
my ego, my soul... bruised, fallen, snapped
I concede....let go, you are happy...in your flight
May be once you are a mother, will feel my plight
when you are given a speck of life to nurture, how it feels,what it takes..
for now I know, you are destined, to make your own set of mistakes.
