Miss You Dad

Among all the gifts, I got in life
you are the best gift given by God
your presence makes everything beautiful
the way you talk, teach, play and laugh
And the way you love. Its all wonderful.

Life was going smooth, in your presence
Everything was fine and going in a beautiful way.

But all of a sudden, the day came
Something happened, that wasn’t on cards.
The dreams shattered and life came to still
the day full of tears, left me lifeless
the day makes me cry even now.

Oh!the days, how can I forget those
when You were there for me
to make me laugh
to listen me
to play with me when I was bored

These things are still there, but going in different way
people makes me laugh
but smiles aren’t sincere
They do help me
but for vested interest
stay with me but to kill the time.

My heart beats for you,
wandering for you all day and night
My eyes shed tears, looking for you all around.

Oh! my Paa,
come once and give
life to this dead soul
sight to these blind eyes
fill wounds of this wounded heart
remedy to this sick body.

Oh my lord, I pray to you
never separate a father from his child
who heals all his sorrow
and makes him feel the earth like heaven.

~Lone Shahid

(Poet has lost his father and these are
some of his feelings for his father)
