My heart cries even to this day. 
I know you are beyond my reach; too far away. 
No more hugs, kisses, or cuddles. 
You left us behind with tears creating puddles. 

How can I ever forget your kind eyes twinkling with mischief? 
How will I ever be able to overcome my grief? 
Those comics and books you gave me to read, 
You taught us humanity with your kind deeds. 

How I miss traveling with you in train! 
Those memories give me pleasure and pain. 
I remember you telling me about the approaching station.
You had all their names in your finger tips until we reached our destination. 

I got my passion for writing from you. 
You were my dictionary to look up for words new. 
Outstanding was your passion for music. 
You were a man with multiple talents that made you unique. 

Why didn't you talk to me for the last time? 
Why did you leave this world before the bell chime? 
I miss seeing your innocent smiling face. 
And I pine for those glorious days. 

Happy Father's Day to you, dear Dad. 
I have mixed feelings, happy as well as sad. 
Feeling sad, because you passed away too soon. 
Having both parents alive is the greatest boon. 

Feeling happy for you because you are in a much better place. 
And no more humiliation or feeling disgrace. 
I know you are smiling at me with love. 
Blessing mom, brother, and me from the heaven above. 

You are still alive, dad, in our hearts. 
Death can never tear us apart. 
How I wish I could keep telling you ! 
With all my heart, ' I love you'. 

Happy Father's Day.

  7. Dear Aparna,

    You are very welcome. It is very commendable of you to write and remember about your father. One never ceases to love those who had featured so much in our lives in many endearing ways. Likewise, I still miss my mother very dearly every day of my life. If you like to know why I miss her so much, I can give you the weblink to my special eulogy-cum-memoir-cum-biography.

    Yours sincerely,

  8. Dear Aparna,

    This very special multimedia eulogy-cum-memoir-cum-biography is entitled “Khai & Khim: For Always and Beyond Goodbye” published at


    For the best result, this substantial post will benefit from using a desktop computer or a laptop computer with a big screen, plus great speakers or headphones, as it contains many photos, videos as well as my musical compositions dedicated to my mother.

    Yours sincerely,
