Father - Poem by Deepak Manchanda

He saw me first time and thought I were a boy
However was excited to receive his new toy

He hugged me tightly and look up for God
Bless her everything he prayed to his Lord

Raised me to his eyes I could see his unshed tears
Will protect you forever he whispered in my ears

I grabbed his chin and pulled him very close
Gently on my face he rubbed me with his nose

He tickled me and I gave him, my first ever smile
I saw him living his life, in that little while

He looked in my eyes, wishing me every moon
I ain’t have no teeth yet gave me silver spoon

Captured each emotion in lot of photo albums
Made me a princess and gave a pink kingdom

I hold to his finger and learnt how to walk
He wanted me to sing, when I ain't even talk

Swiming or Skating I was enrolled in all
Buy me always new things, if goes to shopping mall

Each day he teaches me, ways to be strong
Gave me his own eyes to find right or wrong

Order Mom put scolding at once to halt
Save me when he even knew, I am at fault

Put me on a bike and dream me driving car
My father wish me to be, an overnight star
