It was holiday in my school. I #planned to visit my old parents in city. As luck would have it, when I reached my parent’s home I found ,my mother was not at home. My father was #visibly happy to see me. Myself and my father #cooked lunch. When my father was helping me I remembered my #childhood days how he used to help me in day to day life.
I had school next day, therefore I came back home early. At night I wrote poem”Father” .Next day I pasted it notice board of my school. The same I am listing below for my #esteem readers.
When I was just a tiny kid,
It seems like only yesterday,
Do you remember when,
Mom was on #profession front,
Doing night duty I will #fear at night,
Tears will roll over my #cheeks,
You #wiped away my tears,
And late at night I called your name,
To #chase away my fears.
In morning you used to make me,
Ready with school bag big,
Containing books and #homework scripts,
You made sure I submit home work on time,
In #Science project you always helped me,
In searching #relevant photographs,
Of trendy #experimental science.
Though time has changed now ,
Your hair is #grey snowy white,
Your gait’s a little #slower now,
Thick glasses help your sight.
Yet, I thirst for years gone by,
To be that growing lad,
Re-living all of the #memories,
Of growing with my best friend- #dad.
In good old days ladder of #gone by time.
