Dear son of mine

sikh-son.jpg

poothaa maathaa kee aasees
nimakh n bisaro thumh ko har har sadhaa bhajahu jagadhees
O son, this is your mother’s hope and prayer,
that you may never forget the Lord, Har, Har, even for an instant. May you ever vibrate upon the Lord of the Universe.
Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 496

By Rajnarind Kaur

Who would have known all the love I feel for you?
Will I be able to give you even an ounce of what your naniji and nanaji gave me?
The strength to swim upstream, against the pressures of society
The steadfast faith in Waheguru to protect you and guide you throughout your life
The Khalsa pride in which you tie your turban every day
The chardikala spirit to be above the ignorance of mankind
The gift of Naam in which you meditate to attain peace
The confidence in which you will stand on your own two feet
The kindness in your heart to always help others through seva
The honesty with which your face will light up like a light
The sehaj in which you will fulfil life’s duties
The control and discipline that Sikhism teaches
The love of Kirtan which is my gift to you
You are still so young, but that sparkle in your eye
Believe in yourself and know that Waheguru will protect you
You are my son, you are my love
Always remember, you are a Singh, a son of the Khalsa
So stand strong!
