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!’
