Grateful Little Voice

The hand
To which touch I trembled
The same hand
Which took me when I was troubled
I was lost and was astray
But the same hand lead me to find the right way

I used to shiver just by one touch
Because I wasn’t used to
Being loved this much
I never thought I would learn to trust
For this world could condemn
Even the right and just

My little voice
They refused to hear
Although I was speaking really loud and clear
Though I was young, I already knew
Some workings of this world
Things that are false and true

As a child
I had big dreams
And of course, I had lots and lots of whims
I wished for this and that too
But I couldn’t!
That from the start, I already knew

People looked at me in disgust
My body’s covered in dirt
My clothes in dust
But one day
The kind you came
And treated a street child like me all the same

A warm embrace, I did receive
My heart filled with warmth
My suffering was suddenly heaved
I couldn’t help it but cry
I hugged you tightly
Not wanting to say goodbye

Then in soft voice, you spoke to me
That you’d take me in
And we would be a family
At first, it was hard to believe
But you gave me new hope
And a new reason to live

Strict at times yet really gentle
If it’s about you
There are lots of stories to tell
But the best story that people should know
How loving of a father you are
How much have you helped me grow

Now, you’re weak and bedridden
I want to repay you
For what you did back then
Now, it’s my time to take care of you
This time, depend on me
I promise, I’ll never leave you

Have I thanked you enough
For what you did for me
For taking me as your child
For loving me and treating me kindly
I love you with all my heart
I wish we will never be apart

But living always ends up in dying
Thinking that
I can’t stop myself from crying
With you, dying in my arms today
Tomorrow, I’ll move forward
And thank you by living the right way
