54. Wait for father

(On the anniversary of 26/11)

Everyone is crying ceaselessly,
I don’t know why.

Mother is crying the most
Her tears make me cry,
But to my persistent questions
I get only tight hugs
I don’t know why.

Just a few moments back
Things were so different,
Everyone was smiling
Everyone was cheerful
What has since gone wrong?

I know who will answer
All the questions I have,
But where has he gone?
Why has he not returned
From wherever he has gone?
