A CANDLE FOR YOU DAD
>A CANDLE FOR YOU DAD
Tonight, when as I was cooking
thoughts of Dad touched my head;
I asked, 'what's today' wondering
while flashback appeared ahead.
I felt uneasy when I sat upon the window
as bursts of wind gossiped with the night
while deep inside, emptiness shadowed
with every memories of my Dad's light.
' It's January 12, ' my sweet one replied
then I realized, it was my Dad's Birth day;
Searched me a candle, I fervently cried
that I can light for him on this special day.
I took the candle and the hat He gave to me
before I went outside near the mango tree;
I lit the candle and its light glowed so bright
As I prayed to God to bless him tonight..
But in the morning, what a great surprise
I see no trace of the candle I lighted twice;
I asked my wife if she took it somehow
but said ' Nope' and this gave me great owe
for I knew Dad took it to light his meadow.
In memory of my my loving Dad on his b-day.
