I know in my heart that you're here,
But why can't I feel you near me?

I search for the signs everywhere
But I can't seem to see them clearly.

There's been so many things I've said to you
And I need to know that you hear me.

Are you all right? Do you like it there?
Do you know that I've always, always loved you?

What's it like? Are you proud of me?
I was always proud that I belonged to you.

I want to see you in my dreams,
and feel you all around me.

I want to hear your voice strong and clear
Reverberating through me.

Can you tell me
Are you all right? Do you like it there?

Do you know that I've always, always loved you?
What's it like? Are you proud of me?

I was always proud that I belonged to you.

After my father 's death, I felt lonely and alone. I always wished to wake up and hear my father calling me for the morning prayer. I always wanted somebody telling me that it is all a dream. I felt as if I was left alone in this world and I detested every thing about this wold. I suffered terrible stress and felt unprotected. I was not ready to accept that I will be all alone with my mother, but through prayers and encouragements from poems, I gained back my strength. Poems like this one give me strength and I always feel as if my father is watching me with a caring eye. It is not easy to move on, but it is important to do.
