Who Am I, Dad?

I danced with the wind, not cared for a dime,
Lived under your shadow, when the sun shined.
Like a princess every day, I ordered this and that,
Sang my stupid tales, again and again, you gave me a smile and a pat.
The day search for the ‘prince’ ended; you gave me right away,
Not thinking twice dad, that I’ll miss you every day.
You gave your piece of heart and we both are happy for sure,
Melting in someone’s life, I don’t have time to ask for more.
Have I ever told you; your teachings are not going in vain,
I conquer all my problems, but, I miss you when I’m in pain.
Who am I, dad? I asked myself hundred times,
Just a random girl, who has the best dad of all times!

*I am not a good daughter but my dad is definitely the best.


  1. Moving poem,Saru....
    "I conquer all my problems, but, I miss you when I’m in pain.
    Who I am, Dad? I asked myself hundred times,
    Just a random girl, who has the best Dad of all times!"

    loved it:)

  2. Ask your Dad and He'll tell you if you were the best daughter.
    I conquer all my problems, but, I miss you when I’m in pain.

    Beautiful post :)

  15. you had me with the first line...not even the full line half a line... it was beautiful...

    I too have written a poem a while ago from a daughter’s perspective... but your poem had this sincerity which poems lack nowadays from young authors.
    I liked it a lot. It has this pull into it… and I love that gravity with which it bounds the readers… I like that very much…
    Cant wait to read your next creation :)…

    Take care and keep writing………

  41. Sars... ahhhh your bad ! This post made me cry ! It reminds me of my dad! He's in heaven now , like your dad ,he was the best dad in this whole wide world. He was such a value laden man. What my hearts bleeds into is dad passed away without any amount of service i have given , am a nurse but i wasn't able to nurse him.
    I super love this line...I am not a good daughter but my ‘Dad’ is definitely the best. Can i tweet this ?
