TO MY FATHER

A man to whom I idolize
A man whom I hate to criticize
A man of dignity, full of courage
His message- love, peace, friendly ties
My father- a man of words and intellect
There’s no one like you, you polish my mind
You know my faults yet embrace me
Your love and kindness, my built-in find

You work devotedly like a slave till night
That your family can slumber easy and tight
You smile at us and ease the pain
Your sagacious decisions always right

My love for you like a never-ending sky
Your affection on me is right from cradle
No diamonds or pearls can replace your love
If God allowed, I would worship your idol
