Hyderabad: 21 Jan 2023: I remember that cheek
when it curved like a bow
and those arms now so strong
once soft as fresh dough.
I remember the smell
of your baby sweet head
and the sound of your breath
as you slumbered in bed.
I will never forget
how your hand fit in mine
and your arms wrapped around me
all of the time.
You are grown now my love
and it fills me with joy
to see how you’ve journeyed
to man from sweet boy.
But that cheek with its plumpness
still lives in my heart
and I’ll never forget
you were mine
at the start.
