Baby's Melody


The magic of Divinity I bring with me
from the lands of beyond.
With the blessings of the Gods,
I arrive …
softly on the wings of the angels.
I bring the infinity of the spaces,
the depths of the earths,
the colors of the heavens.
and….
silently I enter your lives.

I draw from the strength of my father,
the love of my mother
and the heritage of my progenitors.
I come…
for you to nurture and cherish me.

I surrender my life to you
and
place my trust into your loving hands.

Wrapped in my innocence I carry with me the wisdom of the ages,
for I too shall teach you
unconditional love, forgiveness, sacrifice and patience.

With the threads of your love and
the guiding Hand of the Eternal One
I shall ride the waves of life.

    In the current materialistic world, devoid of ethics, morals very few things are left where one can find purity, inner joy, selfless attitude. Baby till a baby is one such thing, (yes we can call baby a thing because when baby is exposed to this world, baby as expressed, doesn; t remain a baby) ..........................to preserve and to evolve those traits a desire that that he does not surrender his life to me(stanza 3) .
