Father’s Day,2013


Today on earth is Father’s Day!
Good children know this anyway;
His love reminds them to then say,
‘God bless you daddy dear, today! ’

‘For things you did for our family,
May God reward abundantly;
Despite much strife, life passed happily,
Because you toiled, so immensely! ’

‘Your love we can’t ever repay;
We wish to emulate your way, ’
To world at large, we clearly say,
‘Our dad was best in every way! ’

‘Happy Father’s Day, Dear Daddy! ’
From daughters Cathy and Diana, Perundurai

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
