73. AFTER SIX LONG YEARS...





I was hanging around at the airport to meet our daughter's plane. A terrible pain and a loneliness swept over me when I saw this lonely luggage trolly, someone left at the end of the airport jetty. I kept snapping away with my camera, feeling a lump in  my throat and my sight slightly blurred for some unknown reason. Maybe I'm crazy. For some weird reason this trolly reminded me of a Dad.


DAD



With you my son,
This is as far as I can come,
Shouldering your burden for you.
Unlike me, my son,
Who's at the end of the line,
Whole new world's waiting for you.
For you my son,
The limit is the sky,
Like a bird soaring high, with a twinkle in yer eye.
For you my son,
I'll be hanging around,
Praying for the day, our paths will cross again.

 I dedicate this poem to our son Hirusha who celebrates his 16th birthday today.

So the daughter I was hanging around at the airport to meet is here with us for her brother's birthday after six long years. So that alone makes this birthday so special.

So she wrote this for her brother.


 Seeing how you've grown
I'm so totally blown
You've changed so much
It is hard to believe such

But yet in your heart
You are the same kind one
So full of wit and
Driving us all nuts

How you've become
Who you are today
The charming young man
You've turned out to be

Though in life we may
Take our separate ways
But nothing can ever change
Your place  in our hearts

Malli, we are Blessed
to have one like you
Wishing you very very many
Happy returns of the day

Wish you a very happy b'day my malla!!!!!

  6. Little birds would be leaving their nest,
    sooner or later and that’s ordained in stars,
    Soaring on to the blue sky so vast,
    Twittering happily to the content of their hearts,

    Beware little one the skies could be rough,
    Buffeting winds would be hurting your wings,
    Knowest thou, whenever you get tired of flying,
    The nest would be waiting with welcoming warmth,
