Dear Dad - Missing You

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

Love You Dad

Love You Dad

The loss is unbearable; the pain never goes away. The years roll by, but the heart yearns for those bygone days when life was a song and dance when dad was around.

They say time heals, but it never does. The gaping hole in my heart is never filled, always null and void without my dad.

Dear dad

Where are you now

I cannot see you

Or feel you next to me

You have gone with the wind

How did you have the heart to leave me

How can I hug you

How can I feel your arm around me

Comforting me

Telling me

That I will be fine

Everything will be ok

When will I hear

Your reassuring voice

When will I hear you

Cracking jokes

Making me smile

Even when my eyes

Were filled with tears

When can I hold your hand again

Walk down the lane

Chatting about this and that

Cracking silly jokes

Laughing and laughing

Till my stomach ached

You were always there

Whenever I needed you

You were patient

You were calm

You were kind

You were generous

You were the very best

In everything you did

You always made sure

That I was okay

Now tell me

When will I meet you again

Are you here

With me

Watching me

Taking care of me

Sending warmth and love

From above

Saying a prayer

For my well being

Dear dad

I love you

How can I be without you

Nothing makes sense

This world is empty for me

Without you

How could you leave me

And vanish with the wind

Will you be there

Waiting on the other side
