Birthday wish written while driving – to manjula

October 26, 2006

Leaving
all the fragilities
of 28 years past
Will you now
hold the future in your hands
Will you
laugh with the careless abandon
of a girl
wearing her first summer dress
catching her first waves
at the sea
wearing teardrops cast in silver
on her neck

Will you at 30
incite a generation of men
to riot
Will you at 40
be mother
to the happiest child in the world
Will you at 50
speak
and flowers bloom. still
at your words
Will you
at the end of your years
look back
and find the world a better place
because you were in it?
