#there Is Something About You...

What is it about you,
I just look
In adoration,
I watch in delight...

Am filled with devotion,
For the moments
By your side,
I don’t even want
To close my eyes…
I feel like a child…

Your silence
And compassion…
Your parlance
I get my salvation…

at times mischievous
sometimes solemn.
never ever

Your gentleness
And soft caress,
your smile
without guile...
Your childlike banter
And graceful movement
Your presence,
Humility and dignity
Fills me with piety…

I pray
I could stay
Forever and ever...
but life beckons

How come
You never sermonise
Or chide
Still, why do I feel
Oh yes, I do feel
Gently chastised...

Oh mother, Oh mother
A few hours
At your feet,
Or on your lap
I feel serene, joyous
And detoxified…
