It’s not often that a child is blessed
with a father such as you;
who can play the role of mother,
as well as be a father too.
It’s not often that men sacrifice
their young adulthood freedom;
and spend the necessary time
to raise their kids and oversee them…
And still not often does a child see
what good parents try to do,
to make their lives more fruitful,
and protect them from ill-will too.
It’s not often that a child shows
appreciation long overdue;
or a bit of understanding
of what parents must go through…
But, it’s often that I think about
your love and dedication,
throughout all the years when I was home,
with great anticipation…
To tell you how much I appreciate,
Those years of dedication.
Happy Mother’s Day Dad
