Parenthood

Burst of tears
Scream of pain
Anticipation
Burst of tears
Scream of pain
Anticipation
Burst of tears
Scream of pain
Silence

And out of the blue
A cry was heard
Only that was heard
A tiny voice of joy
Joy that brings hope
Hope that creates family
A baby popped
A mother is formed
So as a father

Responsibilities await
With such tiny hands
Tiny feet, cheeky face,
Comes great risk
One wrong move
And it goes back
To the heavens above
But if taken care
It stays, with mum and dad

Such a great gift
To have a baby
Yet such great effort
To take care of the baby
Only if instructions are included
Wouldnโ€™t it be easy
Do this, do that
Just follow what it says
Wouldnโ€™t it be great

But think about it
If it were that easy
If it were that great
Whereโ€™s the sense of it
The sense of pride
The sense of joy
The sense of fulfillment
The sense of love
The sense of parenthood


*To all parents, I salute you. To my mum and dad, thank to you for taking care of me. And since itโ€™s Fathers Day, dadโ€ฆ Wherever you are, I know that in spirit youโ€™re with us, Happy Fatherโ€™s Day!
