Birth Day Boy at 55

A cute baby becomes a murky old man;

Still he likes and waits;

To hear the three letter sentence;

Happy Birth Day.

Still he likes to hear from his near and dears;

Many Returns of the Day.

Still he enjoys;

When his elder says;

God Bless You.

He still returns every wish;

With a ‘Thanks’

Or with a ‘Thank you’

Or with a ‘Thanks a lot.’

Still he recounts how his mother;

Kissed on his cheek

Remembering her pain of ecstasy on his birth.

Still he recounts how his siblings;

Fought for little more milk-rice prepared by his mother.

Still he recalls,

How his father gave his stoic blessings.

Now he gets birth day wishes;

From few youngsters;

Whom he considers at par with,

His son, daughters, brother and sister;

He enjoys their wishes with same enthusiasm;

What he enjoyed as a kid fifty years ago.

A small kid still lives inside his old body;

Who loves all the importance;

Bestowed upon him by his well-wishers;
