Children My Swinging Elephants

Coming slowly you catch my veil and swing,
I dandle you fondle you, for you more I sing.
My life flows towards you blossoms my smile,
Leaving all works I run behind you for a while.

Like elephants you all dance around near me,
Swinging of yours in cradle in wonder I do see.
I feed you rice, milk and bread showing moon,
While you do not eat, cry, I become worry soon.

You do not know many nights I don't sleep well,
While you sleep I watch you my children you tell.
With worries and courage I do handle your fever,
Giving you dosage form, I call God again forever.

Never can you feel a mother's heart how does cry,
Leaving away rain drops cloud as far stays in its sky.
Dry up you when your faces demanding something,
I give all efforts with cheer to fulfil get pain nothing.

Mother oh mother while you call me from far back,
I get heaven near full of palms you do more check.
My necklaces the children are you I decorate heart,
In each beat you live I live you feel all near me smart.

Invisible thread is there tied by God in true affection,
Nobody understands this special childhood emotion.
Nurturing you I remember my child days and mother,
Bowing before ever serve and work for eternal father.
