Why did you send me so far away from you,
Where I wonder when I will get to see you or hear you next.
When will I lie in your lap,
while you brush and oil my hair.
When will I get to hear a soft scold for my mistakes,
Followed by a caressing hand on my cheek to pamper me for my little achievements.
How I miss the little laughs we shared,
Gigglings and gossips at bedtime,
Sleeping carefree depending on papa to wake us up in the morning.
I miss the street side shopping we used to go on Sundays,
But, now the life without you is like never-ending days.
