See the miracle unravel
A heartbeat imprinted on yours.
Your soul clutched in tiny palms
A gummy smile to welcome every morn.

A journey to traverse clueless
A test to clear without guide books.
Apprehension at every turn
Have to second-guess each thing.

To nurture another life
A gift and a responsibility
Not a mirror of you to make
Rather a shining star with shades of you.

Only a few years to enjoy
Till the metamorphosis is complete.
Help them to break the cocoon
Fly free, their destiny to seek.
