One Papa One Mummy


Living in
An orphanage
The parentless
Ever smiling
Cute little girl
With blonde hairs
Shining eyes
On seeing
Any man woman
Unaware of the fact
What papa
Mummy means
Addressed them
As papa or mummy
Adopted
By a childless couple
On her way
To her new home
She cried and cried
When repeatedly asked
The reason for
Her crying?
Sobbingly replied
In my old home
I had many papas
Many mummies
In my new home
I shall have
Only one papa
One mummy
