Today I Weep, and my Tears are a Fragrance of Love: To Our Children. (Inspired by my Friend Jamie).
Suffer little children ... theirs is the Kingdom ..
I look at You lovingly, and my Heart thrills;
The rays of the sun, in its effulgence,
Caresses your serene faces in reverie.
As the majesty of waves curls and splashes,
The rhythmic breathing of your delicate forms,
Resonates like Nature’s cadences, while walking Her dawns.
My Heart is filled with longing,
And I smile, as I hear your anguished cry.
The midwives untangle you from my wife’s sanctity,
With the grace-like elegance of ballerinas,
Placing you delicately in your cozy cots.
Meanwhile, I’m immersed in the profundity of bliss.
Today I weep, and my tears are a fragrance of Love.
Feeling only intense joy and thankfulness,
I offer Gratitude, from the depth of a receptive Soul.
As your faces glow with iridescent beauty,
The effervescent moon cradles you in sleep,
And I dance with the naiveté of your dreams.
O Beauty‘s Gold, O Friend of the new-born!
Come! Sweet exultation!
Stay connected to our lives in loving splendour.
Let us all enter into Your rhapsody,
Sitting at the table of Your cute Palace,
To dine with Love-Delight.
