A Sense of Calm Prevails

When i came into this world kicking and screaming, You were there.
When i pooped as a child, You were there.
When i needed a playmate for my toys, You were there.
When i entered junior school, You were there.
As i grew up, You were there.
When i needed a hug, You were there.
When i needed somebody to cry on, You were there.
When i wanted to laugh madly, You were there.
When i was hungry, Your were there.
When i achieved something, You were there.

But...the unfairness of life has taken you. Yet, you did not give up without a fight. Now when i want something...You are not there...

For 22 years..you have taken care of me, showered me with all your love and affection, fed me with your delicious food and what not. Your joyous face always made me come running to you. 

Yet, on this day...i watched you. Frozen. Shrunk. and burnt to ashes. Your absence affects us all...give us the strength to get over you yet, not forget you.

You always loved the beach... And to the beach you finally went... 

Rest in Peace and watch over us my dear Paati...
