To Arush, my Grandson, on his first Birthday…

08 June, 2010


A small bundle of life,

Smeared and covered

In blood of my own blood,

With soft tiny palms,

Holding the power

To put the balms,

On my scorching

And painful strife.

Your first crying

Your  baby babel,

Soothing my very being

With peace and calm

Heralding life and rhythm

To silence the clamours

Of my life and soul.

Fragile and red,

You looked at me,

Our eyes met

And a voice

That only both of us heard

And a new bond

Of love and adoration

Of peace and assurance

Too, was born

That I live beyond

My worldly existence

Through you my love

The blood of my own blood!
