Good Bye


We met as strangers
Applauding each other's aura
Piercing  the soul
And beyond

It was a strange pull
That drew us close
Of a mentor
And a parched mind

There was everything
A  heart could desire
Sweet nothings
And shared bliss

Somehow somewhere
Creeped in reason
Was it too tumultuous
To last many seasons?

I walked
Atop the line of fire
My skin a washed
With the leaping flames

A little voice pleaded
Pray le me go
Set me free
For it was indeed time to say Good bye

Daddy




I came into your life
As a lucky omen
You prospered
As i grew

You were the perfect father
Read me stories
Gave me values
And lessons to last a lifetime

I grew up
A midst your fragrance
That would reach me 
Till eternity

I left your nest
To experience  the world
A harsh cruel malady
But i took it all

From distant shores
I called out to you
But you could not hear me
The chasm  between us was too wide

Bewildered
I learnt to survive
Your teachings kept me going
But i ached in sadness

For no  man could love me like you
None could understand me like you
I sang your song
And life went by

Seasons changed
Seasons came
You came in my fold
Unbelievably

Today i have only one care
Daddy don't go afar
Hold my hand till eternity
Cos ill always be your little girl.
