My Joy

Tags: joy, tears, lady

My second baby on the way
Pit tar patter my heart went
Expecting, worried, jittery, a glow
Warmth in my heart, love in my mind
Wish for a fairy princess in our lives

Land of exotic where I lived
Conspicuous for worshipping goddesses
Notorious for killing daughters in womb for wish of a boy

Blink of eye time passed by
A kiss of butterfly wings
I feel you unfurling in my womb
Joy of life lighting my being

Sometimes alone sometimes lonely
Most time hopeful from my destiny,
Came the day of my fulfilment
Anticipation warring with anxiety

Tears of joy down my face
Love brightening my heart
Finally was I blessed with bundle of sunshine

Lying on my back womb still open
Arms entangled with all the IV
I kissed and kissed my girl

Days merging into months
You emerged from you cocoon
Giggling, laughing, crying, inquisitive
Why’s and where fore’s, bossy, cantankerous
Pat down with art of flattering
Rollercoaster of emotions
Melting my disgruntled frown
When I hear your voice asking
“Why are you angry mommy dear?”

I see you exclaiming at gooey snail
Or hear you saying
“My god elephant is so big!!!”
I hear you screaming
“It’s wiggly wobbly!!”
At swinging rope bridge.

I see you doing half a pirouette
Falling halfway exclaiming
“I love ballet!”

Joy you give you father, Late at night
Welcoming him with squeal's echoing
Half a block

I see you soothing your brother’s fevered brow
Or healing his hurts with small tiny dimpled hands

I call you my princess
Angel of my heart
Melting the day you proclaimed me
Your angel heart.

Every day I discover the joy of my girl
Dancing and singing to your own tunes
An amateur ballerina
A budding singer
A joyful runner
A passionate artist

Her father's "Lady"
Her mother's "princess"
A cuddly, giggly toy for brother.
