Sweet Lullaby - Poem by Reshma Ramesh

I wake up from deep slumber
To little hands caressing
My cheeks, I peer, half open
Eyes which he shuts with his
little fingers, kisses my cheeks
Noisily and says 'Hush Mommy'
'Go back to sleep'.

(This poem is dedicated to my son 4 and half years old
who is sometimes mothers me.)
