You came in my life like an adorable monkey
Who jumped around
….and made a big mess of everything.
But it was all so lovingly done
I wished this mess happened everyday.
You were a sweet little honeybee
You brought the sweetness of honey in my life..
every action of yours was so…sweet
..and you brought the sweetness in my hive.
….a playful sweetheart
who knew those playful tricks from his birth
even the most angry parent would melt
and love to be intrigued.
A little bundle of joy
you were full of colors
who made my life
and filled it with happiness
like never before
…like a mischievous prankster –
Who brought all the mental peace of mind
there was no peace
when you were not around.
Your stubborn attitude
made us agree to your demands
Or just avoid them to keep you shouting
Until we budge in.
Your charismatic presence
was my mirror image.
The ‘Bangalibau’ perfect
in kurta – pajama.
Your loving smile
would have won hundreds of worlds.
Your playmate Chimpu (the chimp)
is still looking for you..
Your playful character
made me remember my childhood
even in the wilds of Thekkady
When we Leos ever met..
something extraordinary happened
we tamed the wild
and made them our playmates.
Do you remember
those evening walks
you would never want to walk
until I decided to stop..
We Leos are different…
playful but nurturing..
Intelligent and inquisitive
like a little prodigy..
that you are.
Down your memory lane..
In some of the darkest corners
I will fade away slowly..
my memories will stop haunting you.
Will you ever remember the warmth and coziness..
will you ever miss my touch when you’re tired, exhausted
will you ever look for the security and peace of mind?
I am not there for you today
and your memories are carefully erased..
by this society..
When these sweet memories fade away..
no matter what you do or remember
no matter how your future shapes up
remember what I taught you..
Learn to stand alone…
don’t try to find happiness in others
be a self-respecting human being
who would not be afraid of anyone
…only a braveheart like you can do that.
You will be a two year old forever in my memory. The way age when we last met. I don’t know who I am for you. Future will tell you that I am no one to you. Only I know that –
I am your first father
Who never really was a father.
Here is a brief message for you from me –
