If Only, Son

by Chandrika R Krishnan

If only I had changed your nappy Instead of your nanny;

If only I had been at your teething Instead of your granny;

If only I had kissed your tears away, Instead of being away,

If only I had been with you, Instead of chasing a mirage of Money!


If only I had been at your annual function,

If only I had been at your graduation.

If only I had shared in your success,

Instead of thinking success was Money!


Oh! Son I was miles away at all your milestone,

If only I could turn back the clock,

If only I was given one more chance,

I would have been there for all your wants,


My only question is son, When I missed so much of your life,

Why did I not miss your funeral too?
