To My Unborn Daughter

Posted: September 6, 2018

Barbie dolls and frocks of bright hue,

Reminds me of my yearning for you. 

Swinging merrily in the mellow afternoon sunlight, your face gleams,

Now-a-days, you come so often in my dreams.

Pink ribbons and Disney hair-clips-

And the cutest pout on your lips.

Impish grin and mischievous eyes-

You’ll believe in living life queen size.

I softly plant a kiss on your forehead,

And croon a lullaby as I put you to bed.

Grow up princess, I whisper into your ears-

You’ll surely be matchless among your peers.
