Daddy, you are always there for me

Daddy, you are always there for me

Mother held my tiny being 

Daddy smiled 

He held me and rocked me

Softly singing a lullaby .

My first steps were taken

Holding Daddy’s strong hands

Each step emboldened 

Every fall softened .

You were my mentor 

You were my confidante 

You were my counsellor 

You were my escort .

You led the way

Protected me from harm

Softly you wiped my tears

Though crying is not wrong

You said

You kissed my bruise

And made me strong .

 I understood the power of love

Because You are my Daddy

Your handprints are imprinted 

On my mind

Your caring touch

is  embossed in my heart

I  remember you Daddy

I  will not cry

Because it is overI

I  will smile

Because it happened.
