Being a part of your nine month life
Now I am letting you go
As you go
Back to India with your parents
Just as my arms and back muscles told me early on
Strengthen yourselves –this boy is weighty!
Now the muscle called my heart
Is strengthening through the pain of saying good-bye
I will love you from a distance
No less than if you were still here
And perhaps pray for you more
