In memory’s embrace, i hold you dear,
Eight long years have passed but you are still near.
You would have turned seventy-three today,
But in my heart , time halted when you left wherein you’ll forever stay.
Your wisdom, strength, and love so true,
Are the gifts you left, a legacy I will try to pursue.
Though you’re not here today to celebrate,
From my thoughts will you never separate.
I remember the words you once said,
With every smile and every tear that I shed.
In my memories you shine bright ,
Your presence lingers as the guiding light.
We will meet in my dreams to your comforting embrace
I am sure your love will transcend time and space
On this day, let me pause to say,
Happy birthday, dear baba , in my own way.
