Tribute To Grandpa



A busy lawyer
A lovely father
A caring grandpa
An amazing writer!

I learned to walk
Holding your fingers!
I started to write
With your blessings!

You made me realize
The power of words!
You helped me to dream
The world of verse!

For every question,
You had an answer.
For each step,
I had your support!

Quietly and calmly
You left the world,
With many doubts
Still unanswered…!


(My grandfather MCV Bhattathiripad died exactly five years back. He was my guide and inspiration. My words have become powerless while writing about him as he was the one who corrected me when I started to write in my childhood days. Even today, I miss his care and love. Hope he reads this tribute and blesses me from the heaven.)
