Dear Pa O dear Pa: Shaleen Singh

Shaleen Singh
You're the fount, and you're the light
A hopeful vision and dream bright

We have a heart that craves for you
We have a heart that waits for you
We have eyes that cry in pain
Waiting for you is incessant rain

Remember the day, when I was born
You took my birth as a blissful morn

You laughed, you danced in festive cheers
Your eyes were welling up with gleeful tears

You cared, you guided you controlled, you watched
You mentored, you loved, you teased you touched.

You left the world but not at all me
I still feel your presence beside me
You are the lighthouse while I'm midstream
In the seasons of darkness, you are Sunbeam.
