Papa, Why You Left Me Alone...... - Poem by Ravi Sathasivam

Papa, I am still ten years old child
I know you were a great soldier at all times
Although, I have been looking after my grandma,
but you have taken so much care for me
There is no lack of love or affection from you,
ever since my mama gone to the heaven
When you take me to the beach, I use to walk behind
you and tie my feet with your feet thinking
one day I will be a strong man like you
But when two soldiers came home with national flag
and gave to my grandma saying you will never return home
My eyes filled with tears and sorrow broke my heart
The Lord has taken my precious papa way to heaven
When you left home I gave you a red rose with love
but you returned me a poppy rose with sorrow
Now I have neither papa to play basketball nor mama to kiss and hug
I know it will remain empty but I have to fulfill your dreams
Papa, my love is always with you, even you left me alone
