The Father in You

The Father in You


When was the last time
I smiled and spent
a quiet relaxing evening
with you these days~
I couldn’t remember…

But I can never forget
how you started weaving
simple dreams for ‘us’,
How can a wife forget
the greatest & worst times shared
through the years
and through all these years.

I remember--

When you promised the world
that you’ll love me forever,
that you would want to spend
the rest of your days with me
and our dream children.

How can I forget…

When you took care of me alone
without complains
whenever I got so sick
while I’m carrying our Vince;
When the time is due
for our son to show,
I can still see in your eyes
Those pretentions of a strong man
trying to hide those fears & tears
as I fainted & they drove me
on the operating table
away from you.
But I could not paint
that brightest expression
that lighted up the universe
when you first held your boy…

Those were a chapter
of a golden memory.
I will never get tired
telling your son as he grows
and as we grow old with time
how much you take care of us both;
that if he can only
see how we’ve been together
before he came
to see the light of day,
I wish he could have witnessed
such sweet memory
of you and I – alone
struggling & holding
on to each other
to build a home.

You are a father indeed!
you have endured
every deepest pain
it takes to be one;

every rough road
has been passed through
with patience and fortitude;
The menace of storms
may surprise us along the way,
but as we walk through life with you,
we can be safe all day!


~ to the most enduring man I have ever known....and a wonderful father too - this is for you sweetheart...~
