Theme: Daughter

My Daughter

Like a mesmerising painting hanging on a wall,
Like a splendid nonchalant firefly glowing in the dark,
Like a wandering butterfly flying in the summer,
Like a subtle tree shade in the scorching sun,
She came into my life,
Slowly and soberly,
Removing all darkness,
Waking me up from ashes,
Making me forget all pains,
Letting me realize my subsistence,
She came into my life!
Like a resting flamingo on far dusky sea-shore,
Like a nightingale singing through the full moon night,
Like a vanishing fata morgana in heated sand,
Like a hypnotising rainbow joining sky and land,
She came into my life,
Slowly and soberly,
Whispering several notes from behind,
Rendering meaning to my existence,
Walking freely in my ranging thoughts,
Liberating my enslaved body through my soul,
She came into my life,
Slowly and soberly!
