A Father's Lament
I’m missing you , my little shadow,
more than words can say,
beyond my deepest imaginings,
with every passing day.
Recalling all those halcyon years
before your independence,
prior to cosmic convictions
gaining exclusive ascendance.
An irreplaceable life’s ingredient
for us has now gone missing...
since happy childhood days and years
with all the hugs and kissing...
you have vanished like a whirlwind
whistling, maybe gone from us forever...
will we ever meet again?
A voice inside me whispers ‘Never!’
