Poetic Streaks are poems/quotes written by the two men who live with me,my hubby and my soon-to-be ten year old son,22nd November is my birthday,so the poems below were their gifts to me along with the numerous smiles and colours they bring to my life.
The first poem,song actually,was written and was sung to me by my son,Abbu,all his original work without any help from me…
the rest were written by my hubby especially for my birthday,all his original work,I was pleasantly surprised and immensely happy for these beautiful gifts.it just made my day grand.

THE BIRTHDAY SONG
She sits in front of the laptop
working all day and night,
she looks so cute in front of the laptop
I wish she was my wife.
Today is her birthday,
her 37th birthday,
she looks quite young,
she is the best lady in the whole world.
Guess who she is?
The prettiest,my Mom.

-Mohammed Abdallah
(Abbu says he is very envious of his Dada because I am his wife,he asks me to marry him when he grows up,he proposes to me at least thrice in a week…but also doesn’t want his wife to be anything like me,hmmm…I know he’s little yet to know what he wants but he sure makes me feel very special)

NOVEMBER AND AUTUMN AND HER
November and Autumn leaves to me
are symbols of you…
for these leaves each blushing red
adorned with colours golden and orange
like an Indian bride…
so passionate…
burns in love and falls
to him…the ground…
trusts blindly…
loses her all for him…
leaves behind everything…
her family…her tree…her roots…
to be with him…
to touch him…
to belong to him…
to become one with him…
to lay her all on him…
so much like you these leaves…
my bride…my wife…
most beautiful…
like November…
like Autumn leaves…

-Taher Mohammed
(this poem I tweaked in a couple of places just to make it a bit more poetic,the next two poems/quotes were read to me exactly how those are,I didn’t add or remove anything)

bride1
YOU AND I
You are a strong woman
made from my weak rib

-Taher Mohammed

bride2
LIFELESS
I feel dead all those times
when I don’t have my eyes on your face…
basically I die each night
until I see you in the morning

-Taher Mohammed
