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
