Happiness and Tears
Happiness and Tears
For me happiness was hearing the first cry of my son upon his birth.
And the first glimpse of him in the hospital room.
Such a delicate touch of his tender skin,
Filled a mother’s heart with sheer joy and happiness.
For me happiness was watching his milestones as he grew up,
From a tiny baby into a handsome young man.
And the first time he stood up by himself.
His first step forward – walking – running.
A mother can’t be anything but happy to see her son’s progress.
Remember the day he fell down and hurt himself,
The next moment he picked himself up and walked again.
For me happiness was watching him win a swimming competition,
And remember the days he won in fancy dress compitition dressed as,
A mermaid, butterfly, goat, princess of Liliput, on different occassions.
Happiness was watching him recover from a physical illness
And getting back to routine duties again.
What joy greeted us upon his first job after the graduation.
Happy as this was the best job he held
And learned the minute details of his job.
Sad when he lost job after job due to an illness which struck him.
Happy when he was in a job, sad when he lost one.
The present phase is a happy one
My son is in a nice job and healthy
A beautiful future awaits him
A caring boss guides him at work.
A mother who understands his unspoken words,
Happiness – happiness – happiness
Yes, happiness – for a doting single mother, and her one and only son.
