My Wealth - Poem by Jaishree Nair
I may not be rich in wealth...
but I am wealthy in the richness of many young hearts
I may not be lucky to be gifted with life's comforts......
but I am comforted in my luck of the gift of a great many innocent minds......
I may not be endowed with the beauty of charm.......
but I am charmed by the beauty of my little angels.
I may not be perfect.......
but my imperfections are dissolved in the fragrance of untarnished love.
I may not be a skilled gardener.....
but my garden is filled with the perfume of various blossoms.
I may not be a graceful person......
but I am graced by the pride of my children varied
I may not be a wise person.....
but my personality is illuminated by the wisdom of youthful innocence
I may not be a parent to be proud of......
but I am proud of parenting my family of hundreds.
I may not be a lovable person....
but I am swimming in the river of love of my children.
I may not be a hearty person.....
but my personality has found a place in many hearts.
I may not be a youthful person.....
but I am reliving my youth through the company of my youngsters
My wealth of young buds adds
grace and dignity to my personality multifold.
To wallow in this heavenly bliss
a blessing for the lucky ones
Proud I am to be in that list
of God's most favoured ones.
