   I cried today
   It was much needed
   And way past due
   Caused
   By the ripple effect
   Of the past few days
   Starting with a poem
   I had written
   Then seeing a painting
   Of us
   Topped off by
   Papers in the mail
   I still
   Haven't found closure
   And I'm nowhere near
   Letting go of the guilt
   But a good cry
   Is never a waste
   And today
   I had a good cry.        JD (Princess)

Dad,

I know this man
Who is dear to my heart.
Suddenly one day
It was torn all apart.

This man taught me everything
That I needed to know,
But I never really listened
Until he had to go.

He gave me love
And touched my life.
It's all over now;
He no longer has to fight.

He tried to teach me
Right from wrong.
The day he left
I wasn't that strong.

He is gone now,
It is hard to believe.
This man is my dad
Whom I will never see.

But I will see him again,
This I know.
The day will come
When it's time for me to go.

So, I'll hold him, dear
And close to my heart
'Cause the day we meet
I know we'll never be torn apart.
                                         ...

Fathers and Daughters . . . .

Heroes that don't wear capes
But are always there to protect us
Struggling to make a living
Yet they put up a brave front
#Fathers

Their weakness and strengths
Are their daughters ❤️

They can be a strict father
They can be the mischievous friend
They can be our shoulder to cry on
They can be our bodyguards
They can be the one who fights against the world for us
They can be our secret keeper too
#Fathers

A rock to his daughter and her best friend
#Fathers

A tribute to all those Fathers who are in heaven looking over their daughters.
And a big thank you to God for all those Fathers who make each day better for their daughters even though they have their own...

PAPA.
How fast time is flying na..
But now I want to stop this time
As I can see how old you are getting & I can see there is no same energy you have now .
PAPA.
Now it's my time to take your all responsibilities I want you to trust on me & on my dreams too
I'm nothing without your support & love
It's killing me we stay in same home & don't talk .
PAPA.
this 4 words "papa" make me smile
The same way I want to make you smile when you say " my daughter made me feel proud"  

                  
        Papa hug me & say that you are there for me , please hold me & walk with me & see what I want to chase ,
I need you , you are just near me & I can't hug you & tell you what I'm feeling....

     Your expected honor
     As a viking
     Always falling through cracks
     As you played the villain
     In your own life story
     Until the final call
     When your nefarious ways
     Caught up with you
     And you fell victim
     To the pills and alcohol
     That stole your life
     While thieves
     Stole everything else
     And all we could do
     Was reap the nothingness
     That was left
     Of your tenuous existence.       JD

        I watch the downpour
        From my bedroom window
        And I imagine myself,
        A solitary figure,
        Being stuck
        In the eye of the storm
        Then my thoughts turn to you
        In the emergency room
        A tempest of machines and strangers
        Surrounding you
        Yet all alone within your mind
        I cannot begin to fathom
        The emptiness you felt
        As you passed on
        From this world to the next
        Never bridging the gap
        Between my first "I love you"
        And my last missed call.          JD (Princess)

Abbu Ki Prem gatha!!

Ji Ab pyaar mohobbat ki baatein rehne dete hain..
Log hain Jo apni alag kahani jeete hain
Unhe bhi apni daastan bayaan karne dete hain..
Ladka ladki isme bhi hain,
Dukhi mt hona..
Par vo dono premi hi hain..
Man me aise beej na bona..
Duniya bs pyaar se bhari kahani nhi hai...
Ye haqiqat har daastan ki..
Koi ishq karta h..
Koi ishq me marta hai..
Lekin log aise bhi hain Jo ye
Ishq nhi jaante..
Pet paalne k alawa kuch aur bhi zaruri h ye Baat nhi maante..
Toh chalo aaj unki kahani sunte hain..

Ye mere abbu hain Jo logo k fate jute silte hain..
Jab se dekha h unko..
Chehra kaala hi paaya h..
Vo insaan hain ya machine..
Ammi ko aaj tk samajh nhi aaya h.. ...

   I can't even remember
   The last holiday
   That we spent together
   And I regret not knowing
   How many seasons
   Of amber leaves passed
   While you were clinging
   To the hope that
   You would see us again
   It must have been rough
   Knowing that
   The beat of your heart
   Lied solely
   In the paper crown
   You thrust upon my head
   When I was just a child
   And that I was never able
   To fully accept
   The responsibilities it bore
   Leaving me now with only
   Harbored love and loss.    JD

My love isn't like a Mom,
Who pampers and cares alot,
My love is like a father,
Who doesn't speak too much,
Yet he always loves and cares the most,
To give the best in this world,
He does whatever it takes,
And to make them feel happy and special,
And,
I'm like your Dad
B'coz love doesn't mean to show it to the world,
It's the silent care and affection
That connects us together forever...

Dad:

"Disillusions always leave us with their magic, they give us an apprenticeship and it is up to us to take it or leave it, a loving break from nothingness, weeping at all times, betrayal, nostalgia, extreme sadness, waking up thinking that it is the end of your days; and then someone makes you laugh again, the illusion catches you by surprise, takes the broken pieces of your heart and gives you back hope.

Well, that's something you can overcome when it comes to your partner, but how do you live with an absent father and all the heartbreak that has left you each year of your existence? Maybe you expect a positive response from me but there is not, I want to tell you that you never recove...

As I (im)patiently wait
For the ashes to arrive
That will prove
Once and for all
That he is gone,
I am transported
Back to the days
Of my childhood
When ashes held
A different meaning;
The closet
In the basement
Of the pink house
Below the fireplace
That scared me
After watching
'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark;'
The soot that fell
To the patio floor
Under the brick grill
He had built himself;
The ashtray remnants
That had been
Tapped out
Of his cherry scented pipe;
But worst of all
Those that burned
At the tip
Of the cigarettes
He had smoked
Way too much.
I would gladly
Take all of those ashes
One thousand times over
Than to accept the meaning
Of the ones that
I no...

The king burned to ash
         Who will call me Princess now?
                       Or am I the queen?

If I were the princess
      I suppose then
             He was the prince
                     Both banished by a death
                           The "king" couldn't prevent.

  The cause
  Still not concrete
  Possible current thoughts
  In direct opposition
  Of what
  We were told
  So now
  Murder and memories
  Play out incessantly
  Like an unending
  Movie reel
  Over and over
  Through my mind.       JD

Dear Grandpa,

Happy Birth anniversary! May your soul rest in peace. I'm sorry I couldn't learn to play violin. I'm learning to play keyboard instead. I'm sorry for not attending your phone call minutes before you passed away:( Old habits die hard. I do the same even now. I don't attend most phone calls. I'm being honest.. I was at a meeting when you called me up. My phone was lying elsewhere. I never thought you were on your last because you appeared to be recovering when I met you a day before you passed away. No use of apologising. I know it. Every time I think of you, I wonder what you would have told me had I attended your phone call that minute? Would you have asked me to take care of y...
