I Heard A Sweet Voice - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

I heard a sweet voice
Dripping honey in my ears
A lovely sound of my life
That I have enjoyed for many years

It brought me into the world
Into the world of laughs and smiles
That walks along with me forever
To bring me joy for endless miles

I loved the echo of that word
That special word that made me say
God Almighty You are really great
How can I thank to you today

I love to hear that sweet voice
The sweet voice of my Baby Doll
When she calls with love 'MY Dad'
It fills with fain and joy my world small

For nothing in the world can be
So powerful to bring me sunshine and stars
But the sweet voice of my Baby Doll
Who is looking for me and calling from far

For God has made this world like this
That daughters go away very far
To make a house a sweet home dear
With love and care like a sparkling star

Oh God its my wish and prayers
For my daughters who are thousands miles away
Please keep them under your shade of bliss
And fill happiness in their whole life's way.

***Feelings Of My Father's Love Penned Down***

Never hesitate.This is the emptiness Syndrom, as known usual. I have 3 sons but they differ much in age, but same story too.

    A father's love towards his children, especially daughters is always special and the attachment is immense. Your poem touched the father in me.10
