The Man in my life

Posted: January 24, 2009 in Art

This is my first poem.


You are the Man in my life…
Who heard my first cries and found a melody in it
Weighed me on your shoulder, lifted me up and showed this world.
While I was viewing the world in the eyes of you
Soon our destiny parted us,
I missed you a lot and wept aloof.

Though I was grown far apart from you
I was grown up in comfort
By the values and the guidelines that you drew
And by the love and care that you showered from distance.
Those were the days when I waited for the weekends
Just to see you and enjoy the outings with you…
You don’t know how I struggle myself to hide the stress in my heart
When you leave me saying the next weekend will come soon.

You learnt my desires and dislikes.
In spite of your busy hours you spent time for me
In filling my world with all I liked just to make me happy.
Its then I realized all your efforts to
Make me forget that you are away from me.

You are my awesome teacher who was on my side
Made me discern the right and wrong
And helped to make right choices in my calibre.
You kindled the spirit in me and fed me with confidence
That made me to achieve with utmost enthusiasm.
I always feel the safeness in the hands of you.

As the years rolled by and I started growing matured
You also respected my own thoughts and interest.
It’s at that point I realized the friendship between us.
I share all my joy and sorrow with you.
My friends became your friends.

Apart from being a good friend,
You are my big source of inspiration.
I liked your attitude towards people
And your underscored importance for humanity
Both in your profession and in your social life.

It is you DAD – an adorable Hero in my life
And a perfect personality I have ever seen.
I am your greatest aficionado feeling grateful to have you
And my love for you lasts forever.
