It was a usual Sunday on 9th of June
Busy with weekend stuffs with a pleasant tune
My cousin was at our place, I served him “Poha” with a spoon
The day started well with a clueless afternoon.
I used to keep my phone always in ringing mode not to miss any call
That day it was silent and I had eight missed calls
Suddenly a call came to my cousin’s phone with a dismal tone
Husband fasten his feet towards bedroom with his cell phone.
Unaware of the matter behind the calls, I focused in preparing food
Still I could feel the vibe of a constant uncommon brood
In a while husband rushed towards me telling, “Talk to Papa”
With “Hello Papa”, his trembling and weeping voice said, “We lost our Grandpa”.
God is watching everything, I felt it so true that day
Despite being always emotional, I stood firm with my father in every possible way
Even though I got strength from the Almighty but emotions were hard to control
Wiping up my tears away I could not stop myself to make a video call.
Tears streamed down my face when I saw him in that way
I bowed my head with folded hands then with flooded eyes I made a pray
Staying away in such moments was really poignant as I could not make a pace
Nothing more but deep inside I knew his soul would soon be in a happier place.
Dear Grandpa, You were a good listener, good storyteller and a special friend
Even though having your first grandchild as a girl, you had never let go my dreams got bend
Your stories of struggle and success inspired me all through when I was down
Lessons from you always helped me to keep the zeal on until you get your crown.
Nonetheless, you were a man with huge heart and gentle personality
The love you had shared always I will preserve as a morality
As a unique treasure, I will conserve all the precious memories with you
Grandpa, All I could say is I will always miss you.
