My two babies :)

The journey of creating a book,

  is no less than bringing a child in this world.
With its own pains and joys,
  a beautiful bond gets formed as the journey unfolds.
Like a child that grows in a mother’s womb,
  hour by hour, day by day.
A story takes its shape and form,
 page by page, everyday.
The journey of creating a work of your words
  is as special as the journey of bringing a child in this world.
The attachments, the excitements, the thrills,
 the frustrating and sleepless nights when several thoughts unfurl.
Like a mother thinks of a child’s name,
  and waits for the baby to arrive.
The euphoria of holding the first copy in your hand,
  and seeing your work succeed and thrive.
From naming your baby to finding a book’s title,
  the attachment grows as the baby gets old.
Like every mother who sees her child as the best,
  you treat your book as a piece of gold.
When people praise a child,
  the mother’s heart swells with pride.
When a book gets a good review,
  in the author’s heart, there is so much delight.
As a mother loves all her children equally,
  it is difficult for her to choose a favorite,
For an author too, every book is a voice, a thought so unique,
   each work is like a God’s gift.
Your child is your legacy,
  long after you are gone.
So is your book which comes to define you,
 Your words remain in hearts for times so long.
