Center of Universe
Trailing footsteps with her unsteady tiny ones..
podgy fingers reach out to hold..
Her eyes searched in eager anticipation ..
Familiar voice broadened her smiles.
Voice quivered at every going away
Cries echoing in heart for several miles
Queals of delight and laughter on every reunion
Bringing joy to dear heart..
The bond of love splashed in such free abandon
All this changed one fine day..
New playmates, new territories of fun..
Destined change of life found its way..
Possessive eyes watched in rapt fascination..
little one's growing wings to fly...
Her new found objects and people of adulation..
Though the centre of universe has shifted
Her widespread arms reaching out for more
No matter how far her boat gets drifted..
Waiting hugs and cuddles will bring her home to shore..
