My Princess

Awaited from the day one making me realize the magical anticipation,
The wait never felt gruesome for you were an angel in disguise,
Each day I looked up to the sunshine I prayed for your well being,
You were just coming to ease my mussy Life.
A gift you are, A blessing, Someone who I waited for long,
You were like that long journey which had the end of lighted tunnel,
Defined you; colors to me when I was drowning in to shades of grey,
I welcome you to the world of togetherness today.

Your tiny shivering fingers gave my heart a reason to stay alive,
Your big bright shining eyes filled up my distance apart,
I aged when; I didn’t come to know and you grew up,
Backing you all the time; though your pace elevated too much.
Pursued you your interests and the direction of your heart,
You forgot that you had someone waiting back at the yard,
Your happiness was ever mine, Your success I wanted to feel,
The pride in my eyes fell down in tears each time you made it real
Those hands of mine when swayed you in the clouds,
They impregnated those wings on your shoulders tight,
Now you’ve learned to fly as high as the real sky,
I let you go discover and won’t ever stop you from trying.
I know you have a life; a family of your own now,
I know you are responsible; a tad too busy now,
Now that you’ve known how being a parent would feel,
I finally feel to rest in peace.

    Such deep thoughts. And yet, it's true. That's exactly how things go, sadly.
