Dear Father


Since I was small

Till I became tall

Since I began to understand things

Till the day I got my own wings

Your love has never fallen short

You've been my support 

Throughout the challenging days

You walked before me when I was little

To set an example for me

When I became a teenager

You walked behind me

To always be there should I need you

And when I became an adult

You walk with me as a friend

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn

Hundreds of bees in the clover

Just a father and the world is complete

Life doesn't come with a manual

It comes with a father

All that I ever am and hope to be

I owe it all to you

A heart to hate you is as far away as the moon

And a heart to love you is as near as the door

You're the best thing that ever happened to me, dear father.
