Poetry

ONLY THEY ARE MINE – MY PARENTS By Sahaj Sabharwal

Written by Editor

When everyone is there, concerned with their own lives,

Only they are here with me,

Not concerned about themselves,

But with my life only.

When everyone is against me,

Only they are with me,

And as they believe me and know me well,

Are enough against any number of people against me,

And also prove me,

Transforming all people to be in favour of me.

When everyone hates me,

And have hatred for me,

Their love is enough to heal me,

And even making them to love me.

When everyone fires on me with their weapons, 

They emerge as a magical invisible shield,

Not worried about themselves,

But safe guarding me only.

When everyone breaks my heart,

And I am just to die,

They become my heart line,

And bless me to live a cheerful life.

When everyone makes fun of me,

Discourages me, 

They improve and motivate me,

And tell me my falls,

Which everyone notices,

But enjoys scene as their source of laugh and enjoyment.

When everyone watches the end, final result,

It only I know,

Their hard-works behind me,

And the appreciation which they deserve and not me.

Who am I?

I am just a new one,

They are experienced,

But none can imagine how I will emerge in future,

But they are indulged in me only,

Doing everything for me, more than they can.

With the grace of God,

Really, they are mine,

A great salute to them for their contributions on me, 

And I am blessed to be their son,

My life is fine with them only.
