To the mother with a child in your lap!

I gape

Wide eyed

At the dancing steps.

How happy,

How jovial,

The young and the old.

Swaying and chuckling

At the party .

While I sit ,

With my baby

In the lap.

My feet longing to dance ,

My heart waiting to break free.

But , wait ,

Dear heart,

Keep patience.

Coz your day will come.

Yes , all you mothers

With young children ,

Your day will come .

You will be independent,


Your little babies will grow

And get busy

And you will be up again

To dance and chuckle

With the rest of the company .

We shall get there soon,

Take heart !
