My Dear Son!: A Poem by Dr. Suboohi Jafar “Aatika”

Yes, I am obsessed with you, my dear son,
Without considering you, I can’t even take a turn.

I am happy being with you around,
I feel, as if my world is complete, wearing a crown.

A crown of being a single mother, who loves you a lot,
Overwhelmed with fear, anxiety, responsibilities and ardor.

You are on my mind, every second, minute, hour of the day,
The way you look, smile, talk and eat, takes my breath away.

You are the reason, I am a mother,
We are together, like a match made in heaven.

I still remember the day, when I held you in my arms,
You were so soft, just like jelly, that you may get harmed.

But when I took you, close to my heart,
I felt complete and confident, to take care of you my sweetheart.

I am growing with you as well, learning new things daily,
Now, you are three years old, my little dainty.

Whatever profession you choose, I am always there for you,
I just want you to follow the right path, and always true.

I wish, that you would grow up as a gentleman,
Who would respect others, with true affection.
