Hey dear Granpa,
I know that I owe
A letter to you
A verse for thou.

On this father's day
I write one with a lot to say
Firstly, your presence was my gay
Your love didn't let me cross the bay.

I have a father who looked after my expenses.
Whereas, you brought me up with all the senses
Showing how to go beyond one's fences
by using mind's lenses.

I tried to follow your ways
But I kept going in search of love
Forgetting no one can be you
And, I was caught facing anxiety.

How can I forget those
Long walks which didn't last long
The endless conversations which did end
Bicycle rides which steered away to sides.

I saw the people, and I understood the world,
I witnessed the love, and I saw the sacrifices,
But I couldn't see you....
My heart yearns to end my best moment with you.

I wish I were able to see you
I hope I could feel you
I beseech I were long gone with you
I wish, I wish, and I wish to be with you.

I don't want love my dear
I don't want marriage my dear
I don't want parents my dear
All I need is those loving moments with you

Can't we read a novel again
Can't we fight over a book again
Can't we talk for hours about it again
Can't we seek a judge to wave a victory flag for us?
