(When a son is few years old)
Dad, where are you?
I want a toy.
I am here, son
To fill you with joy.

(When a son is in his teens)
Dad, where are you?
I need some money.
I am here son,
Working hard for every penny.

Dad, where are you?
I stumbled while playing.
I am here, son
To hold you while you are still recovering

Dad, where are you?
My marks are low.
I am here, son
To teach you till you glow.

(When a son just completes his studies)
Dad, where are you?
I am confused what career to choose
I am here, son
To guide you what path to take and what to lose.

Dad, where are you?
My job gives me no satisfaction.
I am here, son
To help you cope up with the situation.

(When a son becomes a dad)
Dad, where are you?
I have become a Dad.
I am here, son
(Smile) To fulfil the duties of Grand Dad.

(When the son is fully established)
Son, where are you?
I need you.
Dad, I will be there
But you have to wait till I reach you

Son, where are you?
I am unwell and I want to see you.
Dad, I will be there
I am unable to find time to be with you.

(After Dad’s death)
Dad, Where are you?
My children have left me and I am lonely.
I am here, son
Praying to God and still blessing you whole heartedly.
