It was too good to be true
like some dream come true
when he said to me ‘I love you’
Till now he never said it
much as I asked him to.
Asked many times, he never did.
I think, he didn’t know he should
show his love, so when he obliged
it was too good to be true.
I remember, the other day
He and I were in some shop
As usual he vanished to his nook
Then came out and proposed,
that if I buy his favorite ‘thing’,
then each day of his whole life
he will say to me ‘I love you’.
I laughed but agreed.
This offer I couldn’t refuse,
for it was too good to be true
And next day he did that.
As I woke up dreamily
rubbing my eyes lazily,
there he stood by my bed-side
his little hands holding my face
thus spoke to me, my little boy
“Mama, I love you!! Now will you
please please please
get me my favorite toy?”
