KAnhu, This Janmashtami it is me who needs a gift, not You

KAnhu Crawl into my heart
KAnhu Toddle not to the edge,
KAnhu this badam kheer for you
KAnhu nibble on sweet mango wedge
KAnhu this pot of maakhan for You
KAnhu i whisk in mishri of Love
KAnhu when kartals and conch at Arati play
KAnhu chhum chhum go Your ankle bells
KAnhu clap clap go Your hands
KAnhu tap tap go Your feet
KAnhu Your Eyes of Lotus dart
KAnhu little nostrils breathe to be
KAnhu Your every gesture kos apart
KAnhu from this mundane worldly ways
KAnhu i cannot get over Your little palms
KAnhu i am afraid to crush You in my arms
KAnhu my mind rolls on the grass instead
KAnhu i cannot contain myself, heart fully fed
KAnhu this JanmAshtami i need a squeeze ball
So i do not squeeze You or bite Your Lotus cheeks instead
