My Baby Never Crawled

Little girl the day

You were born

My world turned upside down

It is yet on the sunny side up

But  while you were growing

You missed an important Milestone

You didn’t  crawl like other babies

You know the mother instinct

Said everything  is ok

But the parenting  books

Gave me a story to worry

You didn’t  not learn to sit or crawl

till you were nine months old

I wondered why

I let time take its course

It was around eleventh month

And you just stood up

I was overwhelmed with this achievement

I did not know what to do

To hold you or to let you be

And then you took your first ‘baby steps’

And you dropped in my arms

I knew you were born to rise

You missed a milsestone

But now you turn heads by your presence
