Father Dear!

A ‘Tribute to Dad’
 

They brought you home,

a little bundle.

Restlessly I fumbled

wanting to hold you,

to softly touch my hope, my dreams

but you were so tiny and tender

What if I hurt you?

So, I let you be,

I let you grow

watching you intently.

As you clung onto dear life –

Your mother

Your lifeline

while I watched behind the lines.

How I envied your mother then!

Moments passed so slowly then

Making me think that you would

never recognize me,

Your father!

When one fine day, tired and exhausted

I lay down loosening my tie beside you.

Something in what I did (I still wonder what)

suddenly made you treat me

with that dimpled smile of yours

that I fell headlong for.

No other person had ever charmed me so.

My little girl

As I watched you twirl

Years passed us swiftly by.

It was time for you to go away.

I suppose we had to call it a day.

You smile for someone else today.

But hey! I know!

There was a time

You flashed that first innocent smile

Only for me.

Then, there was just the two of us.

You and Me!

    Hi Ana, Nice to see you here. It definitely would be a lovely world if all fathers thought like that – full of affection for their daughters. Sadly, that is not the case….:(
