Staring All Day

“You know, you can’t do it”

Her voice echoed in my mind longer than i thought it would. It had a distinct flair, like the one voice you dream of all the time when you can’t sleep.

I knew i was being careless but that didn’t change the fact that she was so beautiful.

She was imperfect in her perfections and so beautiful in her madness.

And i didn’t mind the fact that she was a Lawyer.

“Why is the world so corrupt?” she shouted again.

I loved when she was talking to herself. She suddenly looked at me, paused for a while and asked ” Why do you stare at me all day?”

Sitting in that corner and staring at her i wish i had an answer.

“Dad this is for you”

 

My heart beats like a string

Playing tunes with a wing

 

Love plays around

When silence makes sound

 

You taught me hard

Often singing a bard

 

Life was never beautiful

Drifting around playful

 

Thank you Dad , for everything

I can never be more grateful”

 

Tears rolled down the face of a proud dad hearing his son’s first song.
