Bless my Father's Soul

You say you are a grown up man
Yet you cry like a child
You, running here and there
And your memories running wild.
You recall your first step
When you first learnt to walk.
Triumphantly sitting on his lap
When you first learnt to talk.
Your first word was Daddy.
Now you know a lot other words.
And that is what the problem is.
You both are now in different worlds.

You say you are a grown up man
Yet you cry like a child.
You, running here and there
And your memories running wild.
You hear his voice now
In flowers that grow by that pond
Memories of you and him
A fatherly bond.
Your first friend was Daddy
Now you know a lot other friends
And that is what the problem is.
This isn't how it should end.

You say you are a grown up man
Yet you cry like a child.
You've learned how to let things go
How to embrace pain with smile.
Beneath all the layers of years
You're still that little boy
Who yearns for his father's touch
An exquisite kick of joy.
Your first fight was with Daddy.
Now you fight a lot
And that is what the problem is.
You loved him more than 'a lot'.

You say you are a grown up man
You try hard not to cry.
You do everything to fight back the tears
But they somehow show up in your eyes

You say you are a grown up man
All big and tall
But every time someone mentions him
You lose your grip and fall

You say you are a grown up man
Yet you cry like a child.
You, running here and there.
With your imagination running wild.

But you remain forever attached to a person who has done everything to ensure your well being and has always loved you. You grow up, and expose yourself to the world but you'll always come back home. No one is talking about staying in his shadow or protection. What I'm trying to say is that you'll forever be indebted to him for all his love and care that he has ever given you.
