A Praise For Daddy


The moment I started to feel
I felt your love for me
I always knew you cared
In so many ways you demonstrated

Even when you were far away
You showed I mattered
In all you did, big and small
Birthdays you never forgot

You made sure I was provided for
You made sure I was safe
Even from afar
I never felt your absence

I have a lot to be thankful for
A lot to be happy about
And daddy you are one of them
I father I am proud of

You may have shortcomings
Sure you are not perfect
You are only human
And that makes you beautiful

I may not let it show
I may seem ungrateful
But I care a lot
I am thankful for it all

I may not have you always
So while I have you
I want to appreciate you
I want to love you

Thank you for always caring
Thank you for the guidance
Thank you for the prayers
Thank you for the love

And so today on fathers’ day
I pray to God to bless you
For all your wishes to be true
Have a happy fathers’ day

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
