We Delight in The Love Which Gave us Birth. A Sonnet. To Venkatachari M
I have strived to serve them,
To exalt the sweet beauty of their sorrows;
Praise and magnify, the deep Gratitude of their joys.
My Soul nourished the unspoken dreams of their Spirit,
While their hope sparkled in my embrace.
Yet they adorned my saplings in their yearning,
Cascaded their sweetness, like rain,
Until I was truly harvested.
The tree bends laboriously,
Yet rejoices when we partake
Of its sweet fruits, in plenitude.
So too, our needs entwine, and
Like the mother of tenderness,
We delight in the Love which gave us birth.
