My daughter! ! !


I gazed at the sky
I saw a luminious object
coming down on earth
flapping its two wings

As it came closer
what I see

Wow! ! !
she is an angel
with love in her one hand
and peace in another

She stepped down on earth
without any interaction
she poured down on me
what she carried in her two hands
and stood folding infront of me

I realised
the rain of grace upon me

I asked, who are you?
she told, I am your love
I am your daughter
The Lord sent me to you

As a mere child
she caught my fore finger
of left hand and asked me
Papa! Papa!
come with me
I'd show you the Paradise

I played with her every smile

O' My daughter!
you always take my favour

After days toil
with my wearied and teared body
when I return to home
instantly you come forward
with a glass of water
my whole tiredness sunk into

You make me refreshed
with a cup of tea
enrapture my soul
with an eternal faith
to live in

When your MAA make me annoyed
you take my favour
without thinking good or bad

You characterise your womanliness
always stood beside the man
to protect him with her deep love
either he was Jesus or he was Hitler

Daughter comes on the earth
as an angel, to make this earth
a heaven, show us the paradise

    COMMENT BY ANNA PARKER
    Father, this is beautiful as a Africa
    rose, beautiful a dragon tear drop of
    pure gold, beautiful as a cool India
    breeze on a too hot day, as beautiful
    as a rainbow after ten decades of
    rain, as beautiful as a colorful
    butterflies that sit on a Sun shine
    rose. As beautiful as the Love you
    share with Ma and all us.The
    reflection of all our Hearts
    together, Kiss by God, and His Love for
    us.As beautiful as that.I Love you more
    everyday, Dad, My, Lord, know next to
    the Love, I have for him. (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
