I took your love and care for granted at times,

I never thought, you will be gone so soon.

I remember you each and every day,

And think of only good memories to feel better,

I never thought you will be gone so soon.

I envy everybody who has parents and always question myself, “why only me?”

I feel jealous of my friends who have their parents with them and not with me,

I feel sad and remember you more when I receive blessings from them for me,

I apologise to each and everyone for being jealous and I am guilty of the same,

I never thought you will be gone so soon.

You never said, you were leaving, you never said goodbye,

You were gone before I knew it and only God knows why!

I never thought you will be gone so soon.

They say that those you love always stay,

They walk beside you and show you way,

I know you are watching us all and showering your blessings even if you are gone,

I never thought you will be gone so soon.

I wish you were here, not for me but for your grandchildren,

I wish they could play with you and get to know you more.

I wish you could teach them things which I can’t.

I just wish that time with you would have been longer.

I never thought you will be gone so soon.

But, I realised with time that it’s just not me,

Everybody is going through something or the other,

Your values and your teachings will always be with me, making me stronger, making me grateful and making me happy.
