Soak no more Dad!

31 Aug

A letter to a father who is angry with his daughter for having chosen a life partner for herself…

Dear Annu,

Soak no more in rage,

For, I still seek forgiveness from you…

Soak no more in the feeling of betrayal,

For, you are my first love and I still love you…

Soak no more in societal norms,

For, in times of distress, the society will not stand by you…

Soak no more in sadness,

For, just a call would have me run over to you…

Soak no more in ego,

For, I have two tiny ammunitions to shove it away from you…

Soak no more in your rigid pretence

For, I know that your heart craves for me just like mine does for you…

    And dear Seema,
    Soak no more in sadness, for the good times are on its way and the little ammunition are going to have a great time with their grand parents.
    I sincerely pray to God that your Dad reads your blogs and gets back to you soon!

    My first comment here Seema.

    I pray that you both reunite. Is there any way to make him read your blog? I am sure after reading he will forget all the anger and forgive his daughter.
