Being spent for the day
He crashed in his grandmother’s lap
And closed his eyes.

As she stroked his hair,
She asked, ‘would you still do this if you have a wife and children?’
With his eyes still closed, he smiled.
And smiling he replied, ‘for they would know only the man I am and will be, but you, you will know the child that I was, the child that I will always be and hence I will remain that, with you, so yes’
