Rushing along lifes tempest ways,
Fighting to keep a bobbing head up
Above the crowd, above the rut.
Never the time to think or give up.
Always defensive, always scared
Never to let the wrong one ensnare.
Feelings, emotions quickly, tightly locked
By pragmatisms everstrong hold.
But as a zephyr, in you gently blew
Unplanned, unknowing, unassuming.
While I wondered what to do,
You opened your eyes, flashing a toothless smile,
Your tiny fingers curled around mine
Flinging your baby arms as if trying to hug
I melted into the most love I've ever felt.
My darling angel, the love of my life
I promise to care and protect forever on.
PS: Vinodh you are 1 week and 2 days old today. You brought about so many changes in mamma, daddy, thatha, amamma and chinum's life in just these few days. Mamma never thought she could ever function for almost 10 days averaging on 4 hours of sleep a day everyday. But the truth of the matter is, she misses you even those 4 hours that she does. You have just filled everyone's life with so much love, happiness and hope and all of our lives revolve around you and only you now. Someday, someday you will be old enough to read this (who knows blogs maybe obsolete then) and understand that no matter how much mamma might yell at you for not doing your homework or coming home late, its only because I'm so protective of my precious gift--you. Love you always baby!
