You framed me as a reflection
A smaller version of you in thought
Educated me, nurtured me,….
taught me the values of life
You showed me the path through the dark
Your guidance became my bright spark
Pampered me to no end…..
My wishes became yours to fulfill
The bangles and dresses through my childhood
The dolls from your visits to parts of the world
That special school shoe from London
That embroidered lace for my Lehnga
The parcels of snacky short eats in tiffins….
that you hand carried through the airlines….
during your travels many
All these are now fond memories of those days
When Daddy you were around with us
All this mattered but you mattered more
Your being was a protective sheath around
The big bear hug that only you could give
It gave much solace that warm embrace
It connected me with my earthly root
And now I still miss that hug, that connection
Years have passed since you have left
The loneliness and grief turned into strength
Yet, I miss you each single day even today
My soul searches for the messages in the air
probably you came to say something someday
In an invisible form you touched me on my head
And I get the fragrance of your perfume in my nose
I find you in my siblings when they meet
Daddy I miss you each day even today.
