Father: The Unexpressed Love Poem by Vishal Wadhwa

Father: The Unexpressed Love

Rating: 3.5


Oh Father!
Today I write my heart out to you.
If I remember,
You were my strength when I could not stand,
You were my voice when I could not express,
You were the courage in my fear,
Your shoulders are strong, my mistakes they did bear.
I might not say this every single day,
But do remember, I respect you in every possible way.
If Today I stand strong, you are the reason,
If I am respected, it’s because of your vision
I might not ask you for my decisions,
But your words are the logic behind my reason.
Years passed by, I can see world without sitting on your shoulders,
But you can still teach me things like keeping pages in a folder,
The next we meet, you owe me some time,
I still want to learn, how you forgot your wishes to keep mine.
One day I would have to take your role,
To reach the depth of your devotion would be my goal.

Father poems touch my heart always. their love is never expressed. they are like a shadow behind you all the time. it is only when there is no light and no shadow, then we realize that there is something missing. Years passed by, I can see world without sitting on your shoulders, But you can still teach me things like keeping pages in a folder, i like these lines the best. beautiful writing
