A Father Like You

by Anonymous

I just want you to know
you mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
would give so unselfishly.

The many things you've done,
all the times that you were there,
Helps me know deep down inside
how much you really care.

Even though I might not say it,
I appreciate all you do
So richly blessed is how I feel
for having a father just like yo

Being your birthday and the best opportunity to pay you an ode, I feel the father daughter relationship is the most beautiful relationship in the world.Father has a prime role to play in the life of a daughter.Thus the daughter regards him as her hero and role model all throughout her life.He plays an important role from childhood to adulthood in her life.He is the friend,philosopher,protector and guide throughout her life.He nurtures her with utmost love and care.The bond between the two is heart-warming and intense.

You have been the beacon of light to whom I reach out in happiness and distress.You have cemented a strong fevicol bond between both of us helping me to get rid of insecurities and getting those good grades in school.The love and care bestowed on me has enhanced my confidence level and I can face all the storms of life with ease.You have been my Rock of Gibralter , you have always given me your shoulder to cry  without being judgemental. Your love has made me assertive and  spunky.You have given me the gifts of honesty,integrity, self-esteem, confidence and above all diligence.The way you have nurtured me from childhood has become a treasure trove of beautiful memories which I cherish till date.We may be having our differences on account of some gender bias still you have always held a iconic place in my life.

Your sane advice in troubled times have helped me to the core and the rapport which we share, feel blessed and hope every daughter gets a slice of it
