With My Father!

Nice beach!
Talking and Walking
With you, I was safe;
Happy and learning!

Beautiful Garden!
Tilling and toiling
With you, I was joyful;
Connected and bound to!

Needy Street!
Serving and Giving
With you, I was soulful;
Growing boundless!

Never could I walk with you
To that nice beach;
Never to that garden;
Never to that street!

I then longed a lot,
The beach, the garden
And the street walking;
You then could not!

Still you taught me
How to be happy,
How to be caring, and,
What is in giving!

You were busy!
All the time hectic!
Sweating
Tireless
Burning
Before that fiery oven
At that little cafe!

Later, you became busier!
Standing
Sleepless
Foodless
At that big iron gate
Securing the big play house!

So,
I was safe
I was learning
I was happy;
Eating, Sleeping
And Growing!

On that day,
Severe pain you were in;
Breathless and restless!
Said I, “You will be alright!”
You did look at me,
Stayed for a while;
The silence was horrible;
Yet you blessed!

*** *** ***
Papa, today beach for sure!”
I looked at my little one,
He smiled, I joined!
