An Ardent Wish For A Dad


Mom busy in the kitchen
And you in your office
You too like mom waiting for me patiently
For nine months with curiosity

Seeing me in the cradle, you ran to distribute sweets
Holding your hands, I had gained entry in the school neat
You in your Old shirt, and I my New school uniform
Dad, you were always the greatest dad for me

You too have spent sleepless nights
When I or my sister was ill and not alright
When school fees hiked
You worked overtime in the office site

For sister's marriage, you had even withdrawn your PF
While bidding her farewell to her in-laws place,
You also had cried inconsolably
Dad, you were always the greatest dad for me

God, let now be my turn to put hard work and struggle for my great dad
You just grant long healthy life to all the dads in this world!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
