That Day - Poem by Constant's Laiv

It was a dark, dull gloomy morning,
The haunting day,
Under the hot sun of October 2008,
The month to remember,
The sun refuses to give bright light,
A heavy bleak blanket like sky was lifted up to block the rays,

A day to remember!
Our cock didn’t crow,
Neither was our cows taken for grazing,
Nor was there any cooing of leaves was heard,
But! Something seems unspoken in the air

Something keeps moving,
Moving, cycling around my family,
Irritating, unknown.
Air seems like whispering news,
Discomfort descends!

The fox crosses our way,
Whirl around our house,
Cats did, pets
A sign of bad omen,

But! Air seems to whisper news,
At a distant we saw hands,
Whiter as snow,
Descend upon my father,
They carry away my father with stretcher,

My mum screams,
Like thunder her voice was,
Tears dig river on our faces.
We all runs to catch the hands of the carrier,
But! All in futile,
They took my father,
My identity.
My pride,
My everything.
Daddy! You will always remain in my eyes, memory,
We shall miss your wisdom,
Your virtues,
Daddy you were great in our life,
Living without you is like car without engine
