No answers I have…

Tiny hands and the hopeful eyes,
Smile waiting to peep through the tightly shut lips,
A tired frown and a bewildered lone lock of hair,
adorn his forehead on this weary eve.
He is hassled by the lack of answers
to his ever multiplying questions.
My son,the eternal philosopher ,
and a keen observer,doesn’t miss anything.
But I don’t have answer to his questions this time…
How long he has to wait?
When will his Pater arrive and humour
his wishes,plans and demands?
My scion at least assures me one thing…
My life is easier and simple than him.
