Robust Life

She is born
Not with silver spoon
She gives us a life of Gold.

She is brought up
Not in a state of aristocracy
She gives us a life of nobility.

She is educated
Not being pampered
She gives us a life of astuteness.

She is honored
Not being humiliated
She gives us a life of transparency.

She is left happy-go-lucky
Not being left loose
She gives us a life of blend.

She is bound with commitment
Not being fickle
She gives us a life of accountability.

She is very compassionate
Not being boorish
She gives us a life of passion.

She is certainly living hot-and-sweet
Not being in heaven-like
She gives us a life of reality.

She is our daughter
Not being treated as a weight
She gives us a life of ‘Robust’.

This poem is dedicated to my dear daughter - HAVYA on her 18th Birthday on 24/04/2009.

What a wonderful write, Vidi. This poem expresses, not only, love for a child (we all love our children) but also a great respect and appreciation for the wonderful, strong, and exceptional individual that she is. Great write. My best wishes to you and to Havya. Richard
