Happy Birthday Glimmer!
In that deadly dark sky after that twilight,
Then emerged a dimmed delicate light
Amidst those congregated emotions,
I held a tiny star, after that endless night.
‘Twas an era of lost hopes
As I lost all strength, all support of mine,
And was thrown into a deep dead sea of despair
And then I saw a feeble shine
Yes, she was a little ray of hope
A starlet, who was though, not bright
She sprinkled sheen over me
And my night was brightened up with a serene light
I lost my sleep, creed and fantasy,
In those endless dark times
Then she arrived in my way,
As the cool breeze whispered through chimes,
I was weak,
Till I got my strength back in her quickening
I was dumbstruck,
Until I got my speech back in her first crying.
I was a popper,
Till I got my treasure back in her clenched fist
I was a looser,
Until I achieved her in my sphere as bliss.
I was a lost daughter,
Till I found my deceased father back in her face.
I was an incomplete mother,
Untill I held her in my arms, and life was embraced.
I named her “Anindhya”
As she was ‘flawless’ and ‘beyond criticism’
A ‘purest ray serene’, and God’s offering she was,
As her occurrence led me towards optimism.
And the biggest gift she has given me
Is when her teachers say—
“Thanks for giving me this Anindhya” 🙂
You were born exactly 8 months after I lost my father, whom I was attached with the most in this world. Every day on that family way was tough on me. But the moment I saw your angelic face, I found him in you. You were kind of reincarnation of my father in my life. You possess the same aura, charm, poise, wisdom and intellect as he did. Even your beautiful facial features and charming personality reminds me of him. On this birthday of yours, I thank God for indemnifying my loss through you.
I know you always remain angry with me that you get less preferences and time from me than your elder sister. Sorry Baby! I can’t help it, as I feel you are matured enough to take care of yourself as compared to her. I need my pragmatic daughter’s help to take care of my prodigal daughter.
I know you don’t like me to treat you like a little baby, but Sorry Baby! I can’t stop it, as you were the one who made me realize the maturity and the responsibility of a mother because of the 8 years age gap between you two. You will always remain a little baby for me no matter how old you get.
I know you feel your sister outshines you and grabs all attention despite all your hard-work, efforts and intelligence. But both of you are the two sides of the same coin where she is the sunshine and you are the glimmer.
Happy Birthday baby Anindhya!
Wish you shine always the same as you do and add many more glittering stars to my life with your achievements and may God endow you with many more years. 🙂
