Note:- I lost my dad to cancer. He was my pillar of strength, with him around I always had this sense of security that no matter how big the problem might be nothing could possibly go wrong. Although he might not be physically present with me now, I still feel his guiding hand on my shoulder. Today being his birthday I dedicate this poem to him & the values he stood for in his lifetime.
My Father, My Friend
Holding my hand you taught me to walk
Patiently listened whenever I wanted to talk.
You embraced me whenever I was scared
For my happiness you always cared.
More than a father you were my friend
& your love for me knew no end.
You were there to wipe all my tears
Motivated me to fearlessly confront my fears.
You were a man of principle
Your will power was invincible.
You knew how to smile even in pain
Never got jealous of someone else’s gain.
Someday I hope to be great like you
Honest, hardworking & having strong moral values.
You might not be close to me now
But In respect for you, I bow.
