To My Unborn Daughter

Barbie dolls and frocks of bright hue, Reminds me of my yearning for you. 

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.

Never miss real stories from India's women.

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.
