In the future

Five years in the future,
Daddy would teach her how to cycle,
While mommy braided her soft hair.
Ten years in the future,
Daddy would teach her to ride a bike,
While mommy would teach her the family recipes.
Fifteen years in the future,
Daddy would tell her about world politics,
And mommy would teach her biology.
Twenty years in the future,
Daddy would be proud at graduation,
While mommy would start looking for a groom.
Twenty five years in the future,
Daddy would give her away at the altar,
While mommy would replay
her childhood dreams of the perfect wedding.
Thirty years in the future,
Daddy would give his granddaughter,
A few piggyback rides.
While mommy would simply nurture
Her very own grandchild.
.
..

If only it weren’t for female foeticide.
