Never Say Die!
by Dr. Madhavi Godavarthy
Bookmark and Share
  My soft cheeks
In your tender hands
Strands of naughty hair on my forehead
You put them straight with your fingers
Sitting on your knees
My shoes you shined to a twinkle
Saw me off to school, college...
And another home
Where ever I went,
I carried you along
My first teacher
But then I saw you on the hospital bed
Gasping for breath but...
Never forgetting to thank the nurse
And then you started sinking
Your roar of a voice once
Now fading into silence
The eyes that spelled wonders
Closed down....
I am proud of you dad
You died like a brave warrior
You always said
Jatasya Maranam Druvam
Every one is bound to die
So I try not to cry
And continue to live with your words...
Never say die!
