It's been seventeen years now
And I miss you badly
You left me with questions unanswered-why and how?
Seventeen years of pain unseen
Nobody knows what I go through
Teary nights those have been
Is that all you wanted to do?
They say we look alike
But now, will you recognise me?
I look different now, different from what you left behind
Not a baby anymore, a bit ladylike
When you were at the heaven's door
Between life and death
Did you wish to live for me more
And give me a life that was best?
Did you hear my heart break
In several tiny pieces
The pain I couldn't take
Hid it in my smile for decades
Was hard to realise
With the word "Dad",Forever terrorised
It just brought tears to my eyes
A picture of ours
Is all I have for memory
Even though now they did something to you, something you call bury
Your little girl
I shall always be
Though apart, you are still my world
I hope you see
In the next life,
Meet me please
Until then, Rest in peace!
