I heard you.
With out hesitation tears nudged at the corners
I failed to console my heart
Couldn't resist all those thoughts
You nourished my pride and ego
And perished staking it all in a go
Iam in search for that hand
Which secured me in your world
Wish I could walk, just few yards with you
Wish I could hold your hand, just for few minutes
Wish to sit beside, watching you a while
Wish to hear that selfless laugh,
let it just touch my heart
Wish I hear you call, I can run to you
Just for a while....
Please come to me...
Which ever possible way you could...
You are best of my precious gifts
Missing even more, after you are gone
As I close my eyes..
Will you visit me dad
Shall I believe, you sat at my pillow
Slowly caressing my head
Placed a kiss on my forehead
Wiped those tears and unheard you creapt
I know you love me,
As much as I do.
