Happy Birthday Urvi!

Suparna wrote this poem for her daughter Urvi’s birthday … It was sooooo good, i wanted to publish it here too, not just put a link to her lovely post πŸ™‚

I think all our parents did this shopping…

Enjoy πŸ™‚

Jai Gurudeva!



β€˜Twas nine long years ago
That we went shopping for a daughter
Daddy and I searched far and wide
Behind the hills and yonder

Above the screen of fluffy clouds
Beyond horizon’s border
Is a little shop that calls itself
Babies Made to Order

We leafed through the catalogue
Unsure of what we wanted
An artist? A scientist? A professor?
Long and hard we debated

β€˜Madame et Monsieur, may I β€˜elp you?’
Asked a charming little fairy
β€˜We β€˜ave babies of every kind β€˜ere
From cute to naughty and scary

β€˜Ow about za little boy
Whiz hair all brown and curly
You could zing togezer β€˜appy ballads
While he played ze ukelele

Or β€˜ow about za scientist
Whiz an inquisitive, questioning mind?
A philosopher, poet or painter?
Ze reflective, sensitive kind?

An acrobat? A ventriloquist?
Or zomeone whiz an artistique bent
A doctor, engineer, cartographer?
May be a future prezident?’

The choices were many and all too tempting
And it would take but a simple spell
But our list was long, so we custom made
Our little mademoiselle

A little streak of mischief
A dash of girly charm
Spoonfuls of courage to face her fears
With dignity and calm

A herb for all the strength she might need
The go-get-what-you-want-now potion
(In hindsight though, we should have used this one
In absolute moderation)

A kind heart, a warm smile
Eyes that were filled with wonder
(The fine print in this label had read
May have a temper like lightning and thunder)

For nine long months we waited
While the fairies did their thing
Then on a starry night in November
The stork delivered an earthling

One look at this little bundle
And we knew we had done it right
There was no doubt, this was very definitely
Love at first sight

Happy birthday, little angel
May your life be filled with laughter
May you find all that you seek
Thank you for being our daughter!

    Thanks for sharing Suparna’s poem! It was beautiful.
    It also reminded me of the good old days when you used to write out blog posts.
    There is a different charm and excitement to reading your words. I miss reading your work *sigh*. I mean the videos are great! But watching a video cannot compare to the joy of reading a well written post spiced with your humor and wit.
    Thank you for sharing & Lots of Love,
