When I Saw You

DownUp +4

What does it make me feel?
When i saw you
It’s a dream come true
As i glance at your eyes
It bothered me a bit
How much i think
We look alike
When i saw you
It made me feel especial
The small talk that we had
That made me plan ahead
But seems that the closer
I wanted to become with you
The more fate pulled away
For gone you are father
To a place i cannot go-not now!
But i hold it in my heart
The small memories you left behind
You have enriched in my life
In more ways that i can express.

You Never Had to Love Me

DownUp +92

You never had to smile at me,
Or tell me I made you glad.
You never had to say I was special,
Or hug me when I was sad.
You never had to hold my hand,
Or check under my bed.
You never had to laugh with me.
Or when I was sick feel my head.
You never had to drive me to school,
or make sure I was doing my best.
You never had to make me feel beautiful,
Above all the rest.
You never had to walk me down the Isle,
On that very special day.
You never had to protect me,
In every kind of way.
You never had to be proud of me,
Even when I had done something wrong.
But I guess you did all of these things,
Because you loved me all along.
You wanted to be my father
Although you never had to be.
And you loved me more than life itself,
Even though you never had to love me.
I thank you every day,
For choosing to be in my life.
You made me the woman I am,
A good mom and a good wife.
I love you more than anyone,
Could ever comprehend.
I will love all the way,
To the very end.
And then when I see you,
All I want to say,
Is that I never had to love you,
But I love you more every single day.

Father – Sad Poem

DownUp +42

Father when i was growing up
you we’re never around
i was trying to find something
of all the things
hungry for your love and attention
i blame you for the loneliness
i am had been
the unexplained hurt,anger,hatred
grief and sorrow
that they’d all assumed
had something to do with you
how painfull it was for me
for not having you by my side
when i needed you most
i wished and dreamed to see you in person
so i could shout it all out to you
how miserable i was
but when we finally meet
and we look each other in the eye
i realized there was something about you
that worth a second chance
and though i know you’ve never made some changes after that
you’ve never give me any explanation
those unspoken words
but magically mend the hurt within
despite the short time i spend with you
i adore you father
but i was again disappointed
and i blame you when i come accross difficult situation
i thought you are sellfish
because it hurts me even more
when you left me again
and GOD called it your home
that i hadn’t given the chance to say goodbye
i cried and cried with so many why’s
but now i understand
because of you
i was given the chance to live my life
to the fullest
you father are the reason
i become the person i am
you are not the perfect father
that i wished
but i thank you anyway
for the beautiful things that happened
in my life
you inspire me to become independent
and allows me to learnt and grown
from all the things
where ever you are right now
i hope you know
that you mean so much so much to me
and i love you father.

Forever True

DownUp +27

Respectful and a loving father as he’ll ever be
On my eyes as well as with my brothers and sisters
Delicate to others feelings most specially to his siblings
Respect and cares enough to his wife and love ones
In his own simple way, he makes sure we’re okay
God fearing, thrust worthy and understanding
Of all his special traits this makes him outstanding.

May I take this special day an opportunity?
And thank you for filling my life with such a beauty
You will always be a wonderful father for me
Of course not to forget how you helped me
Reach for the stars and made my dream come true
Endless as the rainbow is my love for you
So in this day forth I tell you, my love for you will be forever true…

For The Daughters – From The Fathers

DownUp +12

How proud does he feel,
To be a father,
Even more proud does he feel,
To be the dad of a daughter.

He dearly loves her,
More than he loves his wife,
He really madly loves her,
Much more than his own life.

He guides her right from the day she is born,
He’s the one who teaches her to walk in the lawn,
He’s the one who teaches her to read in the dawn,
And he’s also the one who teaches her to pray
When the day’s gone!

Till now, he’s a loving father,
Of a dear daughter,
Till now he’s a proud father,
Of a cute daughter.

But as time passes by,
She no more needs this old guy,
And all she has gotta say—
Is,— “He knows nothin’ of today.”!!!

Slowly she jumps from the lap of teenage,
And enters the gate of adulthood;
She leaves this old father on a certain day,
And breaking the rules, with her lover, she runs away!

He becomes nearly paralyzed,
His heart breaks to cold pieces like ice,
And he thinks, he ‘was’ a loving father,
And he ‘was’ a proud father!

A child relieves its pain by crying to its parents,
And so a wife to her husband,
But a father has none to stand,
And thus, his tears dry within his broken heart!

This is the pain frequently given by proud daughters,
This is the pain frequently received by poor fathers,
And this pain of a loving father
Is the Most Tragic Pain in the world of Love!!

Once, she was a proud loving daughter,
And now, she’s a proud loving guy’s lover!!!
