It seemed you were just a pound of flesh; in the sacrosanct womb of your revered mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you stood more towering than the skies; with your eyes glistening more flamboyantly than the midday Sun; as you hoisted me on your fearless shoulders.

It seemed you were just a pound of bones; in the immaculate belly of your vivacious mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you matched me step for step as I raced towards the finishing line; entwining your fingers impregnably with mine.

It seemed you were just a pound of water; in the divine pouch of your stupendous mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you literally blew the air from my lungs; as you euphorically punched me in waves of insurmountable triumph; on heart of my chest.

It seemed you were just a pound of hair; in the Omnipotent sac of your impeccable mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you proudly intimidated me in every aspect of life; soaring above the crimson cocoon of clouds; even before you alight a single footstep.

It seemed you were just a pound of wails; in the divine cradle of your ingratiatingly alluring mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you confronted me eye to eye across the table with passionate fire blazing in your eyes; drowned in astounding fantasy; that triggered thunderbolts of lightening in clear sky.

It seemed you were just a pound of blood; in the invincibly compassionate stomach of your mesmerizing mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you signed countless Business deals every unfurling minute; blazed like an insatiable volcano; in whatever sphere of life you wholeheartedly undertook.

It seemed you were just a pound of inconspicuous jelly; in the worshipped bowl of your philanthropic mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you left me panting for breath; as you clambered like an uncontrollable whirlwind to the summit of the mountain; carrying me down; as I miserably felt
short of indispensable life.

It seemed you were just a pound of diminutive emotions; in the innocent entrenchment of your twinkling mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you indefatigably romanced with the soul mate of your choice; conceiving and profoundly assimilating the beauty of this fathomless planet; in
every beat of your thundering heart.
And it seemed you were just a pound of brain; in the celestially blissful bag of your immortal mother; only fractions of seconds ago,
While today you had made me feel the richest entity on earth alive; granting me an infinite more lives to live in this single lifetime of mine; as you tirelessly kept calling me father.
