A Letter To My Princess - Poem by Aminath Neena

To my beautiful princess

Sleeping peacefully
Enveloped in the soft folds
Of my breasts
You smile
A perfect little angel
Carved expertly from my flesh
Within my viscera

A priceless gift
Of cosmic intervention
Bestowed on m e by munificent powers
An ionic wish granted
On the visage of a shooting star

Oh my little tulip
You are my hearts joy
My soul’s fulfillment
The laughter of my kindled spirit
The centre of my existence
The reason for my sustenance
My anguished heart soars
Doing somersaults
At the marvelous sight
Of your adorable sweet face

My tears subside
As forgotten rain clouds
With your sweet babble

Oh my sugar plum
Forgive me if I fail
In any way
To fill your tiny heart
For I am unable to provide
The groomed make up
Of Your biological inheritance
For reasons of validity
An absolute necessity
On my part
Which I hope you would understand
When you wear the crown of woman
Perhaps in a decade or two from now

But even despite this hassle
We both may still dazzle
If tooth fairy sprinkles
A little sugar dust
On our interconnected lucky stars
Sending me a shoulder to lay my head
With bedazzled eyes
Half closed
And a warm nurturing circle
Of unconditional love for you to cling on
Guiding your tiny feet
In the correct direction
No matter of darwinized stigmata
Blood groups or fingerprints
The heart could still be rejoiced

Oh little rose bud
Just like a little bird in the nest
One fine day you are sure to fly away
From the comfort of this tree
Where the fingers of my palm bled
While gathering the sticks
To light the fire that warmed your spirit
And you will make your own
One fine morn

But until then my sweet princess
I shall love and nurture you
Within the confines of my potentiality
To nourish your growing heart
With the golden fruits of my soul
So that you will be a blessing
Not only to a closed circle
But to mankind, for eternity

So sleep well my darling
On my bosom
The curvature of my breasts
As your blanket
Sweet dreams……..
With love
Mummy
