Coz you were there for me
Before I could pull out my hood or handkerchief….
You taught me to ride a bicycle
You taught me to fight the bullies without a rifle
You always made time out of your busy schedule
So that I could learn to walk and run without any fuel
I still remember when I was a kid
You used to hold my hand while crossing the zebra field….
And even now you do the same
Though I’ve grown strong enough to avoid being lame…..
I’ve seen you longing for perfect time
To fulfill your dreams and fly sky high with the wings….
Instead you used that time
Decorating me with the sense of fulfilment of my dreams and Baloney things….
From 00.00 of Greenwich Mean Time
Till the 23 dot Fifty nine….
You work for a beautiful life
Not for yourself, but for your kids and wife….
You even preferred your pockets empty
Yet you filled mine with some delicacies and a spare fifty….
Thinking of all the times when you held me in your aching humerus
To rush for the hospital, makes me humorous….
Of why you got my scratch checked
And left your bruising arm unchecked….
There’s nothing I can do to repay this debt
Neither will I be able to love you the way you loved me without whispering an alphabet
Nor will I be able to build a wonderland
Just like you built one for me, but I promise I’ll never let go of your hand….
