Julia’s joy

Julia’s joy

As a baby in a pram with a pacifier in the mouth

The small sweet eyes wide open full of curiosity

Aware of the objects, the people, the movements and the sounds

Wondering what’s going on unperturbed with a child’s innocence

And laughing joyfully at every teasing from the parents

This is joy! A baby’s innocent and sincere joy


As a kid on the playing grounds with class mates

The play time in the nursery school returns to memory

Aware of new things to be learnt and homework to be done

Wondering why all these are necessary with a kid’s inquisitiveness

And singing joyfully after the first test is passed

This is joy! A kid’s conscious joy


As an adolescent with a group of friends at a party

The mind free of burden, the eyes checking out the one that could be

Aware of the competition and the shows going on

Wondering whether the chosen one would turn up

And smiling joyfully at the first move and the passionate kiss

This is joy! An adolescent joy of passion


As a parent relaxing on the sofa, watching the little one play

The arms reaching out to hug and feel the delicate body

Aware of the need for protection, care and parental love

Wondering how could I, Julia,  make it as a perfect mother

But playing joyfully with beautiful Saskia in her pram

It is at last clear to me, that this is joy! Julia’s parental joy
