My Father....

Problems
Hopeless and Delicate, I
The reassuring croon
Solutions perched
The tutelar touch
Like soft petal 
Accomodating the tiny dew drop
A parasite me nourished
The host drained 
Smile intact, Rumples hidden 

Ominous nebula cuts the blue sky 
The heavy deluge
Outside, I stand
Drenched
I yearn, I pine
The umbrella
He will hold
Incessant wait
The river of tears
Raindrops 
Intermingle
The pang of Gross truth 
I shlep myself towards the open door
Looking in

Dad, I miss u.........

    1. Thanks for your words, Tulika! Yes, when they are near we tend to take them for granted, but when they are not, we fathom the real essence.
