Oh Father I Love You - Poem by Fatima Obaid

I don't remember the time we met
but you do as your eyes still get wet
i didn't know you before, nor you do
but you waited for me many months
every night you dreamed of me
and talked your dear about me
finally after months of wait and curiosity
i came into your hand as a reward of your love
i cried and cried and cried
you smiled and laughed and laughed
you taught me how to crawl
and how to stand and walk
you put me in the dark and showed me light
and in the light you lead me toward right
you are my first love
you are my first friend
without you i cant imagine my life
you are my hope of imagination
mommy just gave birth to me
but you, you gave birth to my character
values, manners, behaviour is all i own from you
calmness, kindness and love is all i own from you
you may go to thousand miles away from me
but i cant forget you, not even for a
millisecond
your teachings run in me like the blood in veins
your every single struggle is my power to struggle
when i work i remember you
when i laugh i feel you in my soul
when i give charity i feel your hands on mine
when i cry i feel you in the air, clearing my tear
when i am appreciated i see you clapping in the crowd
where ever i go, whatever i do
i feel you, i feel you, i feel you
every time i call you as baba, papa, abu and daddy
choosing different names is a way to show my love to you dad
I Love you papa for being my words
I Love you papa for being my world
