In the noise of hustle bustle was a little sound…
She chirped and hopped in the lap…
Asking her dad to take a deep breath…

So busy was the man, that he couldn’t console her..
So little was she, so little her wish…
She grew up seeing him toil…
In fulfilling every need, his clothes were soiled…
She grew up smiling at him…
But couldn’t understand…..
What was there that kept him going…
No regrets he had, no pain did he share…

But her little wish was still not fulfilled….
She grew even more..
Seeing and wondering the life sea shore..
So little she could understand…
So little she could comprehend…
In heart of her heart she always wished…
To complete her unfulfilled wish….

She grew up seeing him growing wise and old..
His determinations growing precious as gold
All she thought was to give him a peace of mind..
Telling him that in this world there’s so much more to find..

So she decided one day to fulfill her own wish..
She sat by his side..
And held his hand and said..
Dear Dad, “I NEED NO MORE CARE..”
I need no more fancies of life..
All I need is a promise
A small token ..that you will live and not breathe later..

He smiled back with hope and took a long breath
Fulfilling her wish..
She was charmed and understood..
That may be he was in need of this breath..
For which he always he breathe later…
