My Story


Sugar coated promises for my hungry soul,
And a touch of her soft hair.
My young heart was elated by only these,
In the beginning of our affair.
In the bus, early morning, we used to meet,
Two senseless people baffled by crowd.
Just to protect us from gazing eyes,
We used to whisper and not speak aloud.
Got married in no time,
She was twenty two and I was twenty four.
God gifted us a little princess within a year,
Felt like happiness entered from our front door.
It was 'you', my darling daughter,
Who completed our family portrait.
You inherited the best from both of your parents,
I'm proud, now you're working in a corporate.
You asked me hundred times,
My story and what inspires me to transcend.
Nothing is impossible for a man, who has a dutiful child,
And, whose wife is his best friend.

Overrated thoughts for success but one thing I say strongly,
The truth is behind every successful man there is a family.

  11. A life does certainly change so much after kids are in the picture! A part of you and a part of your spouse are in one new being. It feels like a dream after a baby is born. Unreal, but real at the same time.

  61. nice one...yes behind every man there is a dutiful child and best friend wife....but one man must not forget what his child wants and what his best friend wants...

    certainly overrated thoughts

    right from start it was about the man only...

    for the man to be successful...the best friend and child goes through a numerous compromises...
    just my opinion...

  77. A best friend wife and a dutiful child. Man can't ask for anything more. But what is more important and neglected is the sacrifices(don't know if you can call it so) they make for his success.

    Good one.. Especially
    "Nothing is impossible for a man, who has a dutiful child,
    And, whose wife is his best friend."

    ............
    The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
