In You Lives My Country

In You Lives My Country short poem

Photo by kalyan02

I am seeing my reflection,
In your pure innocent eyes,
You grin ear to ear,
Taking in my surprise!

You garland me with your arms,
I wrap you in mine,
My clouded self forgotten,
I relish our big hug time!

You try to break away,
But I plead for more of you,
You blush and run away,
Making each instant brew!

Your stepping stones are laid,
Whenever my heart does beat,
You summon me at your will,
I am a magnet to your feet!

A lesson I learn every day,
A lesson I have to teach,
Our shoe size maybe same now,
But it’s many a miles before you reach!

I induce my inner pride,
View a fresh world through you,
Like a new invention to unfurl,
In you, I see, my generation new!

I part with all my learning,
To craft a nucleus of a better me,
I bare myself to fill you up,
So rebuff me, you may, but carefully!

In you, my child, is ‘a selfie’
Of a nation that’s truly free,
Save it, share it, only if it depicts
My country flourishing unreservedly!

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
