The Story of a Father and Son....
The scene outside the maternity ward
Tensed, anxiety and curious looks, Oh my lord!
The sudden shriek of baby cry is heard
Hurray! ! ! a baby boy is born, a nurse declared.
The onset of your life's journey began here
Our happiness and joy doubled with cheer,
Your were pampered and treated with utmost care
Love poured in from everywhere!
You were taught to walk and talk
Daddy, What is that? you once asked,
Its a 'bird' darling, I answered 21 times,
But patiently smiling and hugging you every time.
You grew then into a handsome young boy
Independent now you were, no more a coy,
I supported you for your choice of life partner
My journey somewhat began alone hereafter................
Since your mom left me making me forlorn
Today am frail, brittle is my bone,
You once said, 'Come lets go for a walk dad,
Its a long time a private moment we had'
The history repeats, we say
I asked you, What is it my son' in the park 10 times
Its a 'bird' dad, you yelled at me,
With wet eyes I moved away mutely.
Back was I with an old tattered yellow paged diary,
'Have a look at this my son,
This narrates the same instance when you were a child
And how I answered you patiently without a sigh'
Don't do this to me my dear,
Am old now and my grave is near,
Am back to where you were 30 years ago,
That's the lifes cycle through which everyone has to go.
Son tearfully held my arm,
Said 'Sorry if I did harm,
I Love you and will always,
Will never ever let you down.'
