O Papa, My Papa
written by: Nivedita Roy
When the road to life gets rough,
I regret not heeding enough.
The smile that brightened my day,
The words that soothed me anyway,
These have just disappeared,
Like the soul that me nurtured.
Your absence pricks like a thorn,
Though I try my best not to mourn.
You were the strongest pillar of my survival,
Wish desperately for your re- arrival.
Feel the pride when am told I am so “you”
I Never wanted this adieu!
When I was born to you and mom,
Ours was love at first sight with aplomb!
It’s the vacuum that never can fill,
Often keeping a semblance is a task uphill.
The overwhelming wish that rises in the heart,
Is that you be my Pa again and never depart!
