happy birthday Dad...
 
Father and son

23 October...


this i will remember
when the rest of life is through
the most wonderful thing i've ever cherished
is you being my Dad, the greatest Dad...

you carried me with your strong wings
when i was searching, reaching the sky
questioning existence, its purpose
its meaning, when my visions started
to unravel, trying to relate to truth
realities, indexing footnotes
i had to scribble relating life


the way you taught me how to react
on my frustrations when things didn't
go my way, you assured me
that the sky is a citadel of hope
its height is not limited to failures
it is likened to an anvil of newness
shaping the sound of winged promises
hovering around for me to dream
reassuring tomorrows were endless


with your tender patience you labored
to let me uncover those things unknown
not leaving me alone, isolated
for you were aware at all times
i was always scared of secrets


frightened with twilight mist
when i thought of abundant blessings
as if a fiery eyed raven swooping down
on me and all that was feasible
were useless without any value
yet you always cemented my belief
all will be overcame by confidence
to do what was right as long as
i played the game fair and square
remained focus, vigilant, consistent


thank you Dad, in my heart you stay
i love you, Happy Happy Birthday!
kiss Mom for me, missed you both...


aloha!
