Long hair you adored ever has become trendily short.
Your lips are stained, and your clothes look worn.
No more attire in pink, and no more bedtime stories.
Silence at dinner, silence all throughout. Closed room and Android screen , you giggle and giggle alone.
The social media and messenger groups, You laugh and laugh alone.
Times have changed; I do understand. But you have grown way too fast!
Little fights and strong arguments,
We do grow apart day by day.
I miss your hug and your innocent kiss.
I miss your voice and serenity with it.
I miss our games and your victorious walk.
I miss the drive and our long walk.
‘Need a subordinate? Employ one,’ carelessly you say.
You are my love, and I do care.
It is not control or oppression as you call it.
It is just love, for I am your dad, and I do love you.
Late at night, and few wisdom lies.
Gone with friends, no more family.
I don’t doubt, but I do care.
And all that I care about is you.
How do I express it? I don’t know.
For all I try ends up as a messed-up tale. ‘Sit and talk,’ I intended to plead and ask. ‘Sit and talk,’ instead, I command.
Mistake is mine, for I failed.
I failed to understand baby is gone And a woman is born. Mistake is mine,
For I tried holding on for so long.
In the shops, I still pick the pink and long And still look at those dolls.
But now, I choose that worn-out jeans And the string you asked.
You could have answered back,
For it’s your sixteenth and it’s my special day too.
Never mind; it’s the adolescence , and it’s difficult for both of us.
You and me, let’s cope up with it, for better times are still to come.
