Papa’s princesses forever and ever!

My dear friend Vartika is hosting a contest on her blog’s first anniversary. We have been asked to share a write-up about someone who is important for us.  

As I sat down to write, I tried to figure out the person I want to say some unsaid things to. I realised that I don’t leave any opportunity to appreciate or express my love for my mom, sister, husband, son and even my niece but for papa it’s not as often. Maybe in general for us father’s role is diluted due to their absence or overshadowed by mother’s presence. Especially for my father, who is a man of a few words but loved and admired by all. 

So Papa, here’s what I want to say to you that will hold true now and forever…

Always your princesses we shall be

Nothing less you’ve made us see

 

It has been a memorable ride

To us you’ve been a friend and guide

 

We became travel buffs thanks to you

Memories we cherish when we are blue

 

Whenever we need you, you’re there

It shows how deeply you care

 

Your selflessness and virtues

Are qualities we want to pursue

 

You work silently, seldom loud

Your actions make us proud

 

We may have our own families now

But we’re still your princesses with the bow

 

Papa, you have a good heart

We love you whether together or apart

 

We appreciate all you do

And are blessed to have a father like you!

 

Your loving daughters

Prerna & Prarthna

 

If you also have something wonderful to express to your loved ones, publish it on your blog and enter the contest.

  1. What to say Prerna. You said it rightly that everyone can see the glimpse of their dads in this poetry. Please share it with your Dad too and make him feel loved today and always.

  2. That was a heart touching poem dedicated to your Father .It is a nice gesture to let him know that he is cherished and loved .
    Fathers are like pillars – always there , silent and reliable.
