If you had only lived for hundred years,
I would have come running to meet you today,
With a big bunch of flowers,
To wish you a 'Happy birthday',
And give you a big, affectionate hug!
How wonderful it would have been,
To see your dark, handsome face,
Your tall frame with strong shoulders,
And a smile so gracious and joyful!
You were a pillar of strength, power,
Like a banyan tree, so protective, positive,
Like a ocean of deep love, warmth and compassion!
Wherever you are now,
Whether still as a spirit,
Or born into a new family,
I just wanted you to know,
That you were a wonderful Dad!
You educated me so well,
Taught me to read, read and read.
You bequeathed to me not diamonds
That dazzled as ornaments,
But pearls of wisdom, so much of learning,
That I carry with me like an invaluable treasure chest,
And will continue to do so, for the rest of my life.
We bow down before you today,
With much respect, love and reverence
On your 100th birth Anniversary!
We know that you are watching us,
And guiding us as a beautiful spirit.
Your loving daughter
