Years ago, she was full of life,
Today all she feels is hollow from inside.
Some tangled strings, some broken chords,
Manages to inflict pain, like being stabbed by a sword.
Stuck in the time while you were here,
Still cannot believe, you are no longer there.
That peace while you pulled me in a bear hug,
Irreplaceable it is, can’t be felt in any other hug.
The soft goodnight kisses you planted on my forehead,
Every time I longed for it, my heart bled.
I wish I could see you one last time,
I wish I could put a stopper to this time.
Hug you strong, and sleep on your laps,
It’s been too long since I had a peaceful nap.
I know you are there watching me,
Your little ‘Mumma’ is fragile, you see.
I want to feel that hand on my shoulder,
I want to see your name flash on my dialer.
You left too soon,
Leaving behind a vacuum.
On one of these dreadful days,
All I long for is your embrace.
I know it’s childish and immature,
But my heart is bleeding and I don’t know the cure.
Your little one is at unrest and pain,
Papa, please come back once again.
Papa, will you please come to hug me once again?
