Thought for the Week

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

Your endless love

had started 

even before my own birth.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

From my first breath

you have shown me your true delight.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

You gave me a beautiful name

during my baptismal rite.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

You held my tiny hands so lovingly,

when I started my first few, simple steps.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

At home, you were my best teacher ever,

who taught me my first ABC tune.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

Your love for arithmetic has showed me

how much you count on me, 

your favourite one!

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

When I reached my adolescent years

you doubled-up your care and protection.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

When the greatest decision 

needs to be made

you asked me to slow down 

without question.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

And, the right time did come

to pursue my dreams 

for my own satisfaction.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

You were so happy when you saw me

packing-up my things 

for a new life to begin.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

We had our first and last gentle fight

over one thing 

from which I could not get the meaning.

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

But, all these precious moments between

you and me have just stopped...forever!

Did I tell you that I love you?

 

Yes, your death made us 

physically separated,

but in my heart and memories,

you are my SUPER DAD forever!

 

Happy Fathers day to all fathers!
