The Parent-Train

We feed them and we burp them
We love them to death

We scold them and scare them
Watch their every step

the-parent-train

We coddle them and discipline them
And teach them all we know

We help them scale heights
And hold them when they’re low

From the moment they are born
Till the minute we die

Our little ones remain
The twinkles of our eye

Parenthood is a ride
Unlike any other

Once the train’s boarded
There is no going back

The journey is long and arduous
But truth be told

There is no greater joy in this world
Than to have a child to love and to hold

    – Sapna, with those four beautiful lines, you’ve succinctly captured the thoughts & feelings of all the parents on Parentous and elsewhere! Great work 🙂

  • Sweetly told Sapna. Parenthood is indeed an experience that can never be compensated.
