To Dad with Love
by Dr. Madhavi Godavarthy
Bookmark and Share
  When the darkness was giving way to the sun
I was tossing in my bed
The chirping birds lulled me to sleep again
That’s when….I had a dream
That’s when I saw you dad
I know I haven’t lost you
You keep reminding me I haven’t
In spotless white as usual, you looked at me
Through your spectacles
And your fingers as always caressing my head
The most wonderful hand in the world
Which, as a child I clasped
In fear and doubt in wonder and victory
I still remember dad….
Your lessons, your stories…language and literature
And the wealth of values that I imbibed
You have taught me to reject, to accept,
To acknowledge and much more…
You have also taught me how to find happiness
You said I couldn’t “buy it by the dozen”
You taught me how to enjoy the simple pleasures of life
Be it coffee or cocktail
Thank you dad for everything
This morning too, you said
You wanted a cup of coffee
Coffee with dad….sounds fantastic
When are you revisiting my dream, dad?
Your child is waiting………!
