For a friend's daughter Taara, 4 years after her elder brother turned the same 1 and I was there to capture the atmosphereRhyme Scheme: Alternate
[To the Daughter]
I'm watching as you get your ears pierced
As I did for your brother some four years ago.
I wonder at what heaven you have conceived
As you become a salve, help us conquer our ego.
Cry in pain little girl as you grow and touch our soul.
Set upon this path of life, mixing tears with laughter,
You are a blessing indeed, you make our lives whole.
Be a source of delight by being foremost a daughter.
I love your parents dearly, they are a friend to many
As I hope in turn you will find people to care for.
Without well-wishers life can become a little weary
Wrest from life the utmost joy, let go your wild roar
I eat now as your family joyously requests me to,
I see your grandfather here taking care of the food.
I wonder at the journeys you'll have, taste a few
Drops of Amrit as you learn to cook and enjoin good.
[To the Father]
Bharath you are now called to continue the prayer
For your daughter, this life is so gleeful and amazing
I hope our paths will meet again in life's theater,
As we ride its ups and downs, enjoy gaily as we sing
A word of comfort to a dear friend to whom I say "Think of the secret of life, as new fields you sow, and water with your blood, sweat and tears"
