Letter to My Son on His 16th B-Day!
Today is your 16th B-Day. I know you had so many plans which just couldn’t fall in line. There are unpredictable developments which came up and we have to comply with that. But you know what that’s fine…That’s life also. Sometimes it happens that way only to give you a different dimension to look at life.
It seems as if the moments just went in jiffy. How can it be possible that sixteen years have passed since the first time I held you in my arms? I remember every detail about your birth, and often rerun that day in the silver screen of my mind. I still remember how the nurse handed me a tiny bundle of joy wearing an angelic beam on the face and wrapped up in white. I just felt like I got the world in my arms. You know what I always wished I could go back and relive it one more time. I swear!!
I always think that I must have done something heavenly good, in this life, last life, whatever they say that I am blessed with a son like you. You have created a love inside of me so fierce, so indestructible, so unrelenting, so unconditional and eternal.
Today you are 16 and I am proud that you are on the right way to grow up as an amazing young man. The shine on your face and the light on your character always affirm me that probably we have been rightly doing our parenting, at least. I am incredibly proud of you as you never disappointed me to be a nice boy. Honestly, I don’t have any set of high expectations in terms of material achievements from you. I know you have the strength and potency to carve out whatever you want from the nature and I believe everyone is destined to archive whatever destiny has stored for them.
I want you to keep that confidence and poise you have now. It often surprises me how people are drawn to you. How easily you make friends. I can send you to a camp half way across the country, knowing nobody, and you come home with a dozen new best friends. I admire your quiet strength in the way you accept the unfair things that happens to you. You keep moving forward, never letting them drag you down.
Keep on trying new things; Continue to meet new people, never be afraid of exploring the unknown; you never know what door opens if you just put your steps out there, And face the challenges head on, You will make mistakes, but its okay because that’s how you learn lessons and become a better person. I have certainly made my share of them, and still make them today. Those mistakes created the path to the amazing life I have today. Doing mistake is human and accepting it and correcting the same is the process of being a better human.
You know I am not here lecturing you anything on your special day. In fact I always feel you have taught me more that what I have taught you. You taught me that we don’t need a reason to smile and celebrate life. You taught me patience. I learnt from you that screaming at life does help you accomplish anything. Instead be calm and let things pass. You flamed the goodness in me, watered the innocence, purity and childlike composure in me to endure the hard waves t times. You taught me not to sweat the small things and better learn new things instead. You never really care what people think of you. You choose to see the good in people, and stand up for others even when you are standing alone. Trust me because of you my life has become much more gratifying
However I have been a lecturing mom at times just because that’s the way mom are supposed to be. I know you tag me as a #TooSanskari mom but moms by default are too Sanskari, always. I don’t want/expect anything from you in return because you have given me much more.
I pray your life is everything you dreamed it could be. Remember how loved you are. You are my sweet baby, mom’s little hero, dad’s best cool dude…We will all always be here for you – your biggest fans.
I want all of your cherished dreams to come true. I never want you to feel unworthy or undeserving of anything, because you deserve the absolute best that life has to offer.
My only wish is be a good human being because the world has a dearth of such species.
Your story is just beginning. I can’t wait to watch you write it…
Happy B-Day Once again.
With life what I observed that it’s more about how we look at life than the life itself…This poem is dedicated for on your 16th B-Day…
Life is a melody sweetest only when
We live it happily in the laughter lane
Life is a magic, strange one though
We believe in its miracles, every moment & so
Life is curse, when we hurt someone
Never feeling the ache, again & again
Life is tragic, when we allow ourselves to be hurt
Feeling frail & puny, which are simply we are not
Life is an adventure, if we dare to dream
Our destiny dances with glory, in the silver screen
Every day on earth is a Theater Day
And We are all actors of a DIVINE PLAY
Life is a Drama and We are here to Perform
Finding its Purpose and Act as per its Norm
Let’s Put on Those Make-ups and Masks
And Resolute To Perform Our Best
Life Is Full Of Typos and Errors
Some May Be Auto Corrected
Some Will Never….
Life is a misadventure, when we fear
Of losing those people whom we adore
Life is an institution, if we love to learn
The wisdom it offers, with its pros and cons
Life is a dream in the fantasy land
With the proverbial genie and its magic wand
Life is love, if we have a tender heart
The best thing on the Universe and on the planet Earth!!!
