Dad’s The Best

He shared joys and laughter 

Picked us up, dusted us

He was strong, the real Superman!

Now he’s frail

Old and slowing down

Time for us to return the favor

For dad, the best

My Father, the Soldier

 you were away most of the times

as I and my brothers grew up 

we did our best to be good

I studied hard to get to the top

hoping it would make you come home

 

I missed you when you left

I would often cry myself to sleep

I knew you had to go because you were our provider

but I didn’t want you to, I wanted you to  stay

for me to keep

 

mama stayed and was both father and mother

it was hard for her but she knew

that you were working hard for us

even if it made her blue

that you were not around

 

I saw you as my protection,

the one who drove the monsters away

when you weren’t home I felt vulnerable

I tried to be strong, I acted tough even when I play

so you would be proud of me

 

Now, I have you near, I see that you’re vulnerable too

I see you cry and act tough, because that is what is expected of you

I know you’re hurting inside

and that you’re just keeping it

we’re here for you dad, we’ll keep you safe

 

I thank you for the lessons you’ve imparted

for the times together and apart, the ups and lows

as this made me strong and made me who I am

so let’s you and I be strong and swim against the flow

because I know we can overcome any problem

as long as we’re together

know that I will always love you

and you’re still the man of my life
