Not just one in million, but million virtues in one

My sky is having million stars, difficult to pick one in million All having own shine, ranking any one sure to cause a rebellion Yet, numero uno tracked by merits through process of elimination Selection complete, its results time, my better half is one in million Spoilt brat was I, uncensored were bachelor days of life She stepped in, anchoring work and family as dream wife Space and freedom she carved out with love’s knife Boundless joy bloomed within new boundaries of life She is mother of my children, my sky lit with two sons bright Groomed in academics, sons featuring in India’s and State’s merit list Nurtured them to evolve as good humans in world full of beast High Moral Values embedded, family’s beacon ensured perpetual light During my health scare, she was by my bed as Nightingale Deftly coordinating with surgeons, calming kith & kin anxiety well Science powerful tool for new life, her devotion powering Yama* to repel Am fit and fine, enjoying blissful moments, gratitude to my Life’s angel Am managing big in outside world, but at home am lost without her Cooking, clothes, children, many chores she worships, never does she forbear She holds the castle, hosting love, peace, joy, keeping at bay grief and fear Not just one in million, but million virtues are in one - my dear treasure (*) Yama : As per Hindu mythology Yama is Death deity ( Placed 8th in Members contest Nov 2010 – One in million by Linda Marie The Sweetheart of P.S.)
