Withering hearts on an emotional departure

Withering hearts on an emotional departure 

We believe, you cannot guess
What we are about to say now.
It really does seem like yesterday
You were snuggled up in blanket in the bed
Listening a story about ‘wedding of ‘Hima Kumari’
And we still see you there listening interestingly
the saga
The memory of childhood will be as clear
in your mind as it is today
Parents never truly lose their children to adulthood
Because of their memories retain
those wonderful times for them

We will never, forget the day you were born.
That wonderful morning
Our house was filled with love and joy,
We had much bigger plans for your life
You are the greatest miracle
that we have ever been a part of,
And we want you to know how incredibly proud us
to have been chosen to be your dad and mum
You changed us, honey!

Oh!  Our dearest daughter,
Your wedding day will befall soon
How the time flew just as a feather; 
from little gown decorated a teddy bear, 
to a wedding sari worn in customary facet
you cannot know
how much frangible our hearts
When we feel that you will forsake us
Little princes that grow to become a woman
to loving parent; she is always their pretty little daughter, 
even after she make them grandparent
The marriage will make you independent
from your parent
There is your partner to partake joy and sorrow
In the journey of new life
Even though, don’t forget, us
Whenever you need, we’ll be there
If your heart is broken,
Or if you are consumed with worry
Please come to us and share your burden

If, no hands on the handlebars,
Or deranged awful convulsions
You can come to us
and we know
You have much of your own to look forward
Remember, we cannot shield you from life’s ups and downs;
But we have prepared you for the rollercoaster ride ahead.
