I miss you!!!

I wish I could go back.
To the times when I’d take long rides in the dull afternoons of summers on my tri-cycle. And would find the joy of worlds in a five-rupee note that’d bring me 2-rupee cake, a ras-gulla and what not.
I wish to go back to the times when you’d bring back my report card and I’d hide behind the door, ashamed at having scored a second. I always wanted to make you proud.
And to the times when in the dim mud-scent of winter rains, we’d go on a long drive and in the silence of Multan’s sub-urbs, you’d let me your words of inspiration.
I wish to go back to the times when everything was so simple and mundane. And nothing mattered, nothing at all, but you and everything was so perfect!! When you’d wake up every evening to tell me the tips on gardening and I’d fondly follow all around the garden.
I wish to go back when you’d surprise us with your sudden visits from Bahrain and as I’d walk to the living room, rubbing my eyes, there you would be with a big hug and lots of sweets and gifts. And I’d look into your twinkling eyes and laugh and stay up the rest of the night.
I want to turn the moments back to that point where I’m leaving the terminal and you’d give me a tight hug and wave your bye as you depart. The journey, every journey, seems incomplete without that. And when you’d recieve me every time I returned. My entire journey was spent in the anticipation of meeting you again and finding your smiling face looking back at me.
I wish you were here today!! And you’d grasp me in your warm, tight embrace and tell me that everything would be alright. So you’d solve it all, this complex mesh of life itself, in a matter of minutes and with a smile. Just like that! Just like you solved every single problem for me through those eighteen years. And then we’d go out on a long drive and have ice cones on our way back.
I wish!! Oh I so wish Abu jee!!
