A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

My Sun Child


Sleepy eyes slowly coming to wakefulness
Recognition slowly dawning on his face-
His lips quirk in a semblance of a smile-
And at a shot, he’s out of bed,
toddling around in wondrous rapture.

His eyes are lit up by the streaking sunbeams
he tries to catch-
Vivid at the sight of the riot of colour
in the garden-
Tender when he sees a little bird or his
Little kitten purring at his feet.
His diamond eyes never lose their sparkle-
Because he’s a sun child!

His peal of laughter rings around-
Its music to my ears:
His gurgle of laughter fills me with a
consuming sense of happiness and elation-
Because he’s mine!

After watching the crimson-gold sun go down
with a curiousness that nothing can surpass,
he nestles close to me;
And with a satisfied sigh,
his eyelids shut, to capture within
The sun in his hands, and the stars
all his to play with;
To frolic with angels in Heaven;
To know every joy of nature.

The world’s all his and so am I
For he’s my Sun Child!

Note: Arjun, for whom this is 🙂 was born way after this…. I had no thought of marriage at his point, since I was still in college 😀 . The miracle is the write itself, how it came, and how, Arjun came to be just like this, esp. as a baby, and a young boy 🙂 🙂 Talk of anticipation 🙂
