Witnessing Miracles


593918df68284a0f6be4c98b8e0b14dc

Witness to  thousands of births n more

A jaundiced, prejudiced eye to the fore

Would not be out of place, you’d think

But there’s the miracle again n I blink!

**

The tender smile, the gentle touch, the wonder struck voice

As a Baby is born, so is a mother, a miracle born of choice!

I never tire of being a Witness to this moment in time

As a tiny bundle of hope n joy makes a mothers heart chime

In unison with the millions of mothers before her

And brings forth an indescribable emotion in her! 

***

Her life will never be the same again,          She will never be the same ever again…

As  a part of her being, a part of her heart,  Will ever walk beside her, but a tad apart! 

❤ ❤

    Arun….more like twang a chord indeed!
    we are but putty in those starfish palms !
    I remember a line in an old song …..
    “Every time I hear a newborn baby cry..
    or touch a leaf..
    or see the sky..
    Then I know why…I believe”
    Keep writing. …I will keep reading…
