The Buoy that Anchors


It’s that time of the year
When this blog comes alive
When loved ones, Oh so dear
Are wished, when them words, here, jive 😀

Blog Tradition holds them threaded
A tradition honoured these special days
Another joins this wishful garland
This one for the Lion on a new trail to blaze ❤

He’s the buoy that floats and grounds
One on high seas, that guides
He’s the one who sometimes senselessly pounds
Madly, in laughter,  then rolls in the tides…

He’s told me, aeons ago, I’m the Right Age
Even though he’s my little one!
Confusion still reigns as to who’s parent and Sage
(Not for him, though, this lion-hearted Sun!)

So, what I’d tell him, if I could, this day
(So why can’t I, you ponder, all awry)
(It’s ‘coz to parent, IT IS hard to say 😛 )
Still, to talk, to write, I must try!

It’s just this – no matter what, or where
I’m good, and fine, because you’re here
Deep in me heart; I know how much you care ❤
So though miles away in footsteps; in heatbeats you ARE NEAR! ❤

(Song LINK, if it does not load 😛 )

A parent (you  😀  ) shall always worry I know
Which is why that bundle you carry
Of concern, anxiety that sometimes gets you low
Shall always, I pray be light and aery 😀

Fleeting concerns, but more on love
Let your life lean into, as you grow in strength
With many a blessing from family and those Above ❤
As you traverse the many paths through Life’s Length. 🙂

May these be what hound you always
Joy, to keep your smile intact
Success, trailing a golden blaze
Love, always, with whom you shall have a forever pact 🙂 ❤

(Song LINK)

Your worry about me, I need you to quell 😀
(Each and every tiny thing you ponder on and nurse 😛 )
Because this mother in your heart does dwell
As you do, in the palm of the hands that reach out from hers! ❤

To hold you close, never your hope to lose
As you, each day, walk the paths you choose ❤

God Bless ya, my dearest Ashwin! ❤
Happy happy happy birthday! Jee le apna zindagi 😛 😀

And Yes! This song too! Soar as this butterfly and roll in the grass like the … 🙂 You are both, sky and ocean, to me ❤ ❤
