Blessed Day Poem by Preetam Shetty

Blessed Day

Rating: 5.0

Blessed was the day
Holy was the sunrise
A pure, innocent face
In my heart I reprise

When the little hands
Cuffed my smallest finger
Oh I can’t really express
My happiness, my wonder

My ears heard your voice
The rhymes of shower
My hands touched your skin
Smoother than any flower

When I saw your lovely eyes
Gleaming at their father
I knew I was the curator
For the best gift from your mother

I promised I will care
I shall love you day and night
I knew with you in my life
Everything will be alright


Absolutley Beautiful! Father and his child. Well done. loved it.

I like the second stanza: When the little hands Cuffed my smallest finger Oh I can't really express My happiness, my wonder That was amazingly stunning. Such beautiful words written for your own child to express your feelings. The greatest joy of becoming a parent. I don't know how it feels, but when my 'chick-pea' (that's how I call her) niece was born I felt as if she were half mine. But she's growing up really fast, now she turned seven. Enjoy every moment with them. Have a nice day. B.B.
