A Dear Daughter - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

My dear daughter
Don’t burst into laughter
I was never been running after
As you are under my shelter

It is usual and routine advice
You should not take it as surprise
As all other parents do
I think the same and it is true

You occupied mind all the way
I had no inkling or other say
I wanted it to happen in casual manner
Still I felt someone one was trying to hammer

It may not be legitimate concern
I never wanted it to take seriously and warn
It may be next as my turn
My fingers were not to be allowed to burn

I have tried several times to peep your mind
I was not at all disturbed or unable to find
You were at your usual show
I could see you to excel and grow

Though I distinguish no difference
Still I try to draw inference
I need nobody’s reference
I was worry free and not feeling tense

Only some parents may be lucky
The question is very tricky
It may have several angles
But we had formed very good triangles

You were my only star
We never wished you to be very far
You may fly away from us one day
As you may have your own way

As the luck would have it
W are still healthy and fit
We can take enough care
And shall be very fair

We are not very much possessive
But in some way very assertive
We always think positive
Rest all have to be your initiative
