RECALLING DEEDS OF DAD ON BECOMING DAD
It was mid January, Nineteen Eighty four
I came to understand , my father was sick
I rushed to my village, taken official leave
How could I avoided his sickness and leave ?
Having reached there I found him in the bed
Too weak to walk , almost approaching to death
Feeling very bad, I was cursing myself , how I left
Him, gone out of city for my job , good for nothing gest .
I served him for about months six,
Gone under treatment of Doctors fixed
At village only but couldn’t cured disease
Finally taken him to Varanasi for better ease .
What a best of treatment the doctors can do
Had given best for ailments but nothing could do
After a week time, finally he was defeated his battle
Struggling with life but ultimately holy soul was settled.
Being elder son, sole responsibilities was my burden
On my shoulders, I was stunned with shock laden
No one was there to console my heart, badly shaken
There were no tears in my eyes , in fact I was so shocked.
All final rituals had gone and after eleven days of his departure
My wife was blessed with a male child happiness came back
All were shouting in joy even my victimised widow mom
But sitting at a side under the guava tree in my courtyard
I was bitterly crying , screaming loudly for my Dad
Recalling all his good deed when I too became a Dad.
