The world divides history into 2 phases BC & AD, but when my dad passed away that day marked a new division time for me, it was the time when I felt like a victim of helplessness while cancer consumed & took away my dad from me. With Father’s day approaching close I dedicate this poem to my dad, for some bonds are incorruptible & outlast the dimension of time, not even death can corrupt the kind of affection & respect I have for my dad.
A message for Dad
Here at your grave, I shed tears
All alone confronting my fears.
Even in sadness, you ignited joy
You were always there to support your boy.
You wiped the tears from my eyes
Told me to be brave & never cry.
Like a phoenix you told me to rise
Gave me strength as you bid goodbye.
Adversities may batter me black & blue
But I know I’m a part of you.
I’m the extension of your legacy
To test my capability I dare destiny.
In life your blessings are my greatest treasure
Thinking about your legacy gives me pleasure.
Your presence is always there in my heart
Even death can’t keep our souls apart.
