Happy Birthday, My Princess - Poem by Aminath Neena

You, my little fairy

Are a precious little bird,

With whom I had shared the song

Of my ethereal soul

Till you could sing on your own

We had shared the same breath

And held onto the same crust

With a pact of solemn trust

For days and nights

When I had marveled at the beat

Of your tiny heart

Embedded as a pearl

Within my shell



And now pure as an angel

Every time you smile

It melts my heart

And I flutter as a butterfly

At times when you cry

My soul trembles

With such force

My footsteps hurrying, to console

When illness straddles your fragile form

I wish I could trade places

With you, my sweet

I cannot help but wither

Till you get better

With your sweet touch

You have given me so much

And replaced everything

that I had lost in my life



Fresh and innocent as a rose

In constant bloom

Your beauty takes away my breath

Filling my heart with such rapturous joy

Your songs brighten my world

Making me strong

Enough to withhold any storm

And the sun does not appear

Over the horizon

A single day

When I had not thanked

The Almighty

Of bestowing me with such

A sweet bundle

Forever wondering, how I got so lucky

Strengthening my faith

In the benevolent creator



It is only one thing that I fear

As much as I wish

for your wings to grow

And take flight

I dread the time that you would fly away

Leaving me behind

As is the natural way

But I want you to know

My princess

If ever you should need me, even then

I would always be there for you

And there is nothing

in this wide world

Absolutely nothing

That I would not do for you.

Happy Birthday my love

-Mummy-
