'Tis the Magic Of Warmth

Motherhood makes a woman much mature. Once you go through the process of delivering a child, you feel you have been given a second life. Oh yes, I have been there now twice.
Your whole perspective towards life changes. You start living in past, present and future altogether. You start respecting whatever you have been blessed with. You start recognizing the value of everything. Even a simple thing like five senses start making so much sense to you. You know how priceless it is to breath, to see, to hear, to taste, to touch. You start appreciating people in your life. Hence, this poem to celebrate the people in my life.

Tiny little baby in my arms, so soft and fresh,
Does she loves me?, I often ponder
She looks at me with a twinkle in her eyes
Gleefully as I give a massage to her..

'Tis the magic of warmth,
that brought our hearts closer
It reminds me of caring moments
My husband and I shared together..

Those nights when tired of a pregnant belly,
All my efforts to sleep wasted in vain
Tired himself from all day of work, and still
Rub my back with his gentle palms to relieve my pain

'Tis the magic of warmth,
that brought our hearts closer
It reminds me of caring moments
My husband's mother and I shared together..

Once she was sick and I sat with her
Kneaded her swollen legs, an effect of diabetes
Once back from work, I had a terrible headache 
She oiled my hair with love, and made me at ease..

'Tis the magic of warmth,
that brought our hearts closer
It reminds me of caring moments
My hostel friend and I shared together..

Carefree days and whole nights being awake
Full of drama, dreams and desires
And when my friend would give a head massage
Heaven seemed Banasthali* (otherwise set up in a shire)..

'Tis the magic of warmth,
that brought our hearts closer
It reminds me of caring moments
My father and I shared together..

It ain't right to tell one incidence
about a man who cared for me since conception
Yet, can't forget that Vaishno devi* journey
he massaged my rock like legs with lot of affection

'Tis the magic of warmth,
that brought our hearts closer
It reminds me of all caring moments
This world and I share together..

I have many more heartwarming stories
These are but just some of such moments
You too must be having your share of these
Our life is plethora of such events. 


*Vaishno Devi - Its a pilgrimage of Hindus. The shrine is located in Indian state of jammu and Kashmir. Pilgrims trek a mountainous distance of 13.5 km generally on foot.

*Banasthali - A deemed girls only residential University set up in a remote area near Jaipur, Rajasthan. I did my graduation from here.
