To Dad

To dad

Memories play with the mind
Of your youthful laughter
Full-throated ghazal singing
To banish exhaustion
Or just for fun
When life turned grim
With gleam in the eyes
You navigated the family
Across fate’s straits
The world celebrates Father’s Day
Once a year
We’ve been doing it
Every moment of our life
But not enough
To thank the unstinting
Provider and protector
