Listen dear..

Soon enough you’ll have one
You will not believe your eyes
When in his, you see your loved one
An entity of yours under the sun
He will have your thrive for life
Your ambition and endless drive
He will have your walk
And will mimic the way you talk
He’ll have the sunshine in his hair
Your strong looks and your little snare
He’ll tilt his head to the right
Keep his chin up and his eyes bright
But he’ll be born in times of change
And just like, to us, our folks were strange
Your ipod will be his antique
He’ll teach you his new technique
To him you’re a thing of the past
A nature’s geek
You tell him about the old days
The ladies his old man had tamed
He tells you to spare him
He’s the man and he’s got game
You want to teach him to hunt and sail
On all your plans he will bail
You’ll lend him all you’ve learned
And through the years, you've earned
And you never know what the bets are
He’s a wild child,
but he’s yours
He’s more precious than your soul
Your pride, your home and your days
For him you would want to be
The best he could see
And you prepare yourself for a day
When you proudly give him away
To life..
You don’t want it to be
But they do design it this way
So before it’s due
Slow down child
Let life celebrate you…

"ya ma blayaleekom....mnishar nghatikom....mnifza3e nwa3eekom....walmma btou3o min edeyna btihrbou....tatel3abo"

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself

It's hard for a mother to accept that.So hard.

at first i read 'elaborate you' instead of 'celebrate you,' and then i realized it was the same thing :)
