My mom had this affair when she was 18,
And my grandma, even before that!
I wanted to be a part of this, since teen,
And carry forward the family hat!
I have always seen her in this affair,
Since birth, till this day!
Wonder, how she did this year after year!
Showing up every time, like a beautiful fay.
This affair of her’s, was vivid,
It had shades unseen,
Sometimes, she would paint it red,
And sometimes, the envious green,
She strived, to keep the affair alive,
With a new shade every time!
She strived again, to keep the affair alive,
With a new pattern every time!
It has seen me sweat and cry,
Comforted me, when hurt,
It has seen me laugh and lie,
Hugged me, when in doubt!
Its Heavier at times,
And soft as silk most times,
And casual at other times,
It’s been a part of my life,
I don’t remember her without it,
Shades of her love, her laughter and life ,
Has painted my world bright,
A day came, when she gifted me that,
Finally, my long dreamt dream was real,
Will I be able to do it, day in and day out?
Well, I wish to, in all my zeal!
Its been a part of my life for a decade now,
Well I couldn’t do it, day in and out as told,
But when I wear, it makes the special one glow,
Making new memories unfold!
