A Second Life

In deep thoughts, my eyes are closed
Mind numb to the people around

The wall hugs my back,
A blanket of heaviness on my heart

What will it be, how will things happen
The circumvent whirl of questions

I put out all prayers
Take note of all Gods I know

I remember Shiva and the Gharib Nawaaz
I recite Gurbani and murmur Jesus Christ

I sense a strange smell,
I hear a cry

The door is pulled back
A veil of apprehension makes way

Her eyes are blank,
I try to read emotions

She takes a profound breath,
her lips pour those everlasting words

“It’s a Baby Girl”

It’s my second life

There is a renaissance of bliss
Of a feeling that had never been

An angel rests in my arms
a tear rolls down my cheek

Two little hands to hold,
A pure smile to devour

The eyes of her mother,
The lips of her father

I thank all my Gods
I embrace my second life…
