You may have thought I didn’t see,
Or that I hadn’t heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we’d grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It’s written on my heart.
Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be
The person I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
I’ve grown up with your values,
And I’m very glad I did;
So here’s to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.
Often moms are given so much credit for the all the pains they go through from giving us birth to loving and nurturing us and they undoubtedly deserve that Credit. But what about that parent who doesn’t ever demand any credit, who works hard in silence, who does all possible efforts to give us a better future.
What about the parent who equally loves us but fails to put it into words and only shows it through his actions, from making sure we are well looked after and our future is secure, to walking us down the aisle, what about that unsung hero – what about our Fathers. If mothers are the blanket of warmth that envelopes us with love, Fathers are the umbrellas that protect us from storms, both equally important both essential for a happy Life and yet there is so less written about Fathers then it is for Mothers, maybe not all dad’s can express the love they feel for us through words, maybe its a man thing.
It is something we realise only when we grow up, and maybe we stop telling our dad’s how much they mean to us too, there’s often this communication gap that settles in after you grow up, so on this father’s day I dedicate this message to all the Wonderful Father’s who love us, to all the Brave single moms who play the role of a Father as well, to all the Generous step dad’s who have the biggest heart to love us and accept us as their own, yes you lovely people, you’re all great in your own way, and your efforts are never overlooked and though we may not often say it but today is the chance.
THANK YOU for being our unsung hero, THANK YOU for all the little sacrifices you made in order to give us a better future, THANK YOU for letting us know that if we fall, you’ll always be there to catch us, THANK YOU for being you.
Happy Fathers Day.
