Ordinary Parenthood ...!
by Rohini Ranjan
Bookmark and Share
  When they arrived; even before their faces were "seen"...
Their unmistakable presence was 'felt!'
As they grew - bigger and increasingly' independent'
We sighed a sigh of relief
Chasing that illusory freedom that was meant to be 'just' that,
Just around the corner...!
But from that initial 'joy-filled response', ours more than theirs...
... arose a bond of responsibilities impossible to shake off -
Even through their infantile and juvenile attempts
To escape and declare themselves Free!
Only parents can survive the frustrations, anger and despondency;
Helplessly shedding a lonely tear...
...while still remaining connected to that first 'encounter';
That moment of creation ...!
Personally encountered, embraced and welcomed into our lives,
Forever, no matter what!
