To World’s Best Dad!!

January 22, 2009
tags: ,


Catching my little finger and making me walk….
Holding me in his arms and playing along with me…
Feeling mischievous and teasing my Mom….
Listening to music and reading books,
Together we did everything nice….

Elegant, humble and composed he is, being the best in whatever he did
Ahh..I was his sweetheart since I was born
He loves me more than he loves my mom

And then suddenly he said “Goodbye my child,
Take care and keep smiling”,
And disappeared into the darkness ahead

Too young I was to understand his words….
Never I felt his absence with my mom beside…
Now I realize, standing under the veil of a starry nite
Good (rather best) were the days when he was with us

They say good are the ppl who pass early….
But I say, may be Best are those 
and they live in the hearts of the dearest….

How can I really miss him??
For, he is there as a guiding star,
When I am caught in a nebulous haze,

He is with us as a friend,
And supports me everywhere
I need not grope in the darkness to find him
For he is already there holding my hand

I feel him reborn within me evrytime my mom says
“U r just like ur dad”

Smile” he says….
“Makes other wonder wat u r thinking!
Makes ur life happier and easier
So face every part of ur life with a smile
And everything comes ur way”

That’s why I am here “Smiling”always for him
Who is winking at me from heavens above
Showering bliss on me!!

From a loving daughter 
To world’s best dad




Written 4 yrs back…..To Him I will always be a PRINCESS! 

arent we all daughters, princesses of daddys? We rule their hearts, we wait for them to come home waiting at the gate, having a big list of complaints of what brother did/mom did , what happened in school that day! 

I remember, how I used to sit on his lap all day long on a sunday not even realising it would be paining him! How I used sit back of him all scared watching Alif -Laila saturday night, how we used to hop off and go for a movie leaving mom and bro behind………uff…if i start it would be endless….so I leave it here and guys and girls go back to childhood days!!

PPS : Gopinath, when I read your post on Daughters, I remembered this! 

Incidentally this is my 50th Post!!! Half a century there!!

    I feel him reborn within me every time my mom says
    “U r just like ur dad”
    is something all daughters hear and with what pride and pleasure 🙂
    How can I really miss him??
    For, he is there as a guiding star

    As a mother I can tell you, that’s what any parents would always want to be … be there as guiding stars so the kids are never all alone.

    Beautiful Sahaja!

    Congrats for the 50th post:-) let celebrations roll on. To be frank my childhood days were really good with my dad never allowed me to get hurt, i still remember one day while playing cricket i have got hit near my eye. when he took me to a govt. hospital they said it need stiches but he feared and took me to a doctor, who was also my father’s friend immediately. He just applied some medicines on it. There are some other qualities i like about my father. To get a nice dress he will travel a long distance and he will change it any no. of times if i have said i dont like it. Still i didnt got the patience to pick a dress for me. But its all changed due to those so called important years in studies 10th & 12th.
