English Poetry

She cries at the drop of a hat
like a little spoiled  brat.
Poos and soils her diapers
and is soon into frown she puckers.

There’s no time or clock in her dictionary
rare are the times she sleeps and remains stationary.
She’s hungry twelve times a day
though like us is made of clay.

Needs to be fed every now and then
she would suckle as long as she can.
Sleep now is under a lot of pressure
but just a smile from her is a true treasure.

Enjoying the night shifts as long as it lasts
with love we are doing our cherished tasks.
Now we know that what our parents went through
as she is giving us a lesson like a real Guru.

      @Pramod, Thanks Pramod…
      Physical distance sure would be inevitable and more so cos she’s a baby girl… But it really doesn’t matter and I am not looking so far ahead…
      Thanks for your time and appreciation…
