Corona is deadly,
Not to take it lightly,
At times it holds on tightly,
And it takes lives untimely !
It happened to my Dad,
He was all well and fine,
A small fever and fatigue,
In hospital just for a week !
The virus overpowered him,
He lost his battle with it,
It was too sad to let him go,
Oh Lord, Why did it happen so ?
He had told me once, the end is fixed,
For all of us , once we are here,
But, don’t know how it will happen,
And in two months time, he may not be here !
He knew that this year may be his last,
He mentioned it quite a few times,
He wanted to visit so many people,
But, Covid played spoilsport to accomplish that !
Sorry Daddy, we couldn’t save you,
From the really deadly virus,
We couldn’t even be by your side,
In the last week of your life !
