A painting

 painting of Saryu by Dilip Parikh. August 2020

A Poem for Him

Since we cosigned in the race of this life cycle,
We have been two wheels of the same bicycle.

You lead me through the seven set circles,
Each has been conjured with many miracles.

The loyalty and longing intertwine hearts,
The routines and the duties tug us apart.

Your foot on the brake and steady navigation
have guided our lives without deviation.

In life’s uphill journey, I follow when you roll,
If you slip into reverse, I cruise and control.

The push and pull, check and balance,
A keen, kind critique brings the best out of me.

A good spouse, a great father, a superb grandfather,
I hope and wish the ride goes far and farther.

For Dilip…on May 19TH…with TLC…Saryu

જીવન સાઇકલ

જીવન કેરી સાઇકલના, હું ને તું બે પૈડા,
એકમેકની આગળ-પાછળ સંગાથીના હઇડા.

રોજ રોજની રામાયણમાં મુજને ટેકો આપે,
વેરાયેલી લાગણીઓ તું સંકોરીને રાખે.

ચઢાણ ઊંચું, ખડબડ રસ્તો, જ્યારે મુશ્કેલ લાગે,
ઉતાવળે જો આગળ ખેંચું, બ્રેક દઈ સંભાળે.

ખેંચતાણ ને અમતલ સમતલ પૈડા ફરતાં જાયે,
કસી કસીને સો ટચ સોનું મને કરી ઝળકાવે.
