Sugar coated promises for my hungry soul,
And a touch of her soft hair.
My young heart was elated by only these,
In the beginning of our affair.
In the bus, early morning, we used to meet,
Two senseless people baffled by the crowd.
Just to protect us from gazing eyes,
We used to whisper and not speak aloud.
Got married in no time,
She was twenty-two and I was twenty-four.
God gifted us a little princess within a year,
Felt like happiness entered from our front door.
It was 'you', my darling daughter,
Who completed our family portrait.
You inherited the best from both of your parents,
I'm proud, now you're working in a corporate.
You asked me hundred times,
My story and what inspires me to transcend.
Nothing is impossible for a man, who has a dutiful child,
And, whose wife is his best friend?
Overrated thoughts for success but one thing I say strongly,
The truth is behind every successful man there is a family.
