The love I have for my father, cannot be expressed in words. Happy Father's Day!(I know its early)

A message to my father

 

I was never part of that high class society,

Where the girls are taught to be prim and proper

Where the men are all dressed in tuxedos and the women in dainty ivory dresses.

 

I was never part of that society

Where children can have any materialistic possession their heart desires

I never recieved any, private education at the country's most prestigous private school

 

My father, was certainly no executive for a top company or accountant or business man

But, let me tell you this...although my daddy had no money or assets

Although I have  little or no material- based inheritance

 

My daddy gave me the one thing I only want and need

He loved me, all the days of my life

He became one of my best friends in life

 

He encouraged me, he was open and he would spend time with me

I did inherit something from him,

His ability to love, care and appreciate

 

His ability to laugh and cry when necessary

His ability to get through life's challenges with so little resources

He allowed me to feel so loved and so special

 

Which is how I always feel because of the love he has provided

I only hope he knows how much I love him too.
