The Little Prince- A Poem

Updated on September 22, 2013

The photo is of one of my best friend's baby brother. And his pet name is Prince. So this poem is solely dedicated to him. . . . .


The little prince descends,

Into her waiting arms.

From the heavens above,

And instantly, everyone he charms.


The mother can't express her happiness,

On the nineth cloud she does glide.

The father is ecstatic,

His eyes reflect nothing but pride.


Whatever those little hands touch,

Turns into pure gold.

Everyone craves to take him in their arms,

They crave for just that one hold.


Those pearly little eyes,

Curiously look here and there.

He roams around on all fours,

Spreading smiles everywhere.


To every one's horror,

He grows up rather too fast.

Soon he'll be walking too,

No more will his childhood last.


He is God's angel,

Here on earth as a prince.

He is the fountain of innocence,

With truth filled up to the brims.


He is the harbinger of happiness.

His presence makes all other things seem bland.

Everyday with him is beautiful,

It is a celebration, grand.


Enjoy his childhood while you can.

Because you never know,

When he grows up,

And when a change would show up,

In your life and his.

      A beautiful tribute to a very handsome young man! You are so right about them growing up so fast! My "babies" just turned 41 and 38 this week. I'd swear it was only a short time ago I was rocking them to sleep in my arms.

      Thank you Poohgranma.... :)

      I have been told all along that i grew up too fast... same is going to happen with Prince... i guess.

      41 and 38.....still, BABIES???

      I thought that could happen in India only.

      Here, mothers think that for them their children never grow up. Guess, it happens everywhere...

      As someone currently expecting a child this was both beautiful and inspirational.

      HA HA HA - No, I realize well that they are grown. My son and daughter grew taller than me when they were only twelve and my son used to pat me on the head like I was a little kid .... used to make me furious..lol Each stage of a child's life can be beautiful and magical; it can also bring heartache and troubles to them, so as a parent I guess you always feel that connection and wish only the best for them. But I joke when calling them my "babies." I am well aware they are grown adults with their own ways, wishes and I try to make sure I respect that as I expect the same respect in return.

      Poohgranma: Ha ha. You see, his patting you on your head used to make you damn furious that time but now, it's the thing that makes you remember and cherish the past. That's basic human nature.

      Yes, a child's life is no piece of cake, i know because i just experienced it. No parent in the world can think bad of his own creation...unless he is a complete mad bonze.

      Believe me, what you have done for them, they should respect you and i am sure they do. You are a good lady, your children can't be far behind. :-)

      Cheers,

      Raghav.

      Oh I remember those beautiful days of seeing my children as toddlers like your little Prince, it made my heart explode with tenderness and joy. Oh how I miss those days, cherish these moments because they won't last.

      They will grow up before our very eyes and childhood will leave and they will have to put on the armor of life to protect them from a world filled with uncertainty. Peace my young friend.

      She and her family were deeply touched by the poem. And they honoured it by using the same piece on the formal invitation card for the child's official reception. :)

      I was deeply touched and moved. Thank you for the beautiful comment. :)
