Beautiful*



In a shiny bright morning
a girl spoke to her mother

Mom, you always look beautiful
I wanna be like you, tell me something

With her touching gaze and smile
the mother answered

For attractive lips
speak words of kindness

For dimple on your cheek
spread your sincere smile on the earth

For lovely eyes
See always the good in people

For a slim figure
share your food with the poor

For lovely curving finger
count your prayer of adoration with them

For white bright face
wash it in every change of time

My daughter...
Physical beauty fades away with time
but beautiful dedds hold true even after death

(September, 2004)
