A White Balloon

A White Balloon

Mama loves her little one with all her heart,
She looks through her tears as their world falls apart.

The girl with a smile says, “Mama! Let’s get toys,
I want to share with the girls and the boys.”

Mama wipes her tears and holds her tight,
She thinks for a while and tries to explain.
“O, my darling! Times are tough,
We cannot afford to buy new stuff.”

 Her bright hazel eyes are puzzled, perplexed,
“All I want is my very own balloon.
Please, mama, please get a big white balloon.”

The little girl plays with the big white balloon.
She tosses faraway, her mama’s gloom.
Her free-floating laugh, sails gliding on the balloon,
A dream of this youth is flying to the moon.

    The little girl plays with the big white balloon.
    She tosses away her mama’s gloom.

    Saryuben,
    The entire poem is touching.
    Yet….I chose the BEGINNING & its END.
    So nice !
    Enjoyed your expression of your “feelings” in English.
    Your writings in Gujarati are superb & deep seated,

    Both poems are lovely.Shows different and higher level of poetry. That is a great news as often many become stagnant. So keep going—-Tamso ma jyotir gamay….

    Her free-floating laughter sails, gliding on the balloon,
    A dream of this youth is flying to the moon….

    embraced by soft winds
    white wisps trailing our balloon. . .
    we’re touching heaven
