Abysmal sorrow

You are my idol, epitome of my life.
I treasure thy memories,buried deep in my heart.

I cherish that warmth as a toddler,
When on your chest I slept .
I miss your fingers caressing my hair, as I wept.

I admire that hug as I excelled in exams,
I miss your temper as I annoyed you with my pals.

I adore those moments when we shared ideas on 
humanity, education, nation and politics,
I miss those times when we celebrated 
days and events.

I felt dejected as u relinquish life,
Tears go dry in abysmal sorrow,

Now as I recapture in retrospection,
I have nothing but to embrace your memories............

You are my sole inspiration,
I miss you deeply, dad !!!!







Written on
In loving memory of my father, 
and dedicated to him
