"Its all relative"

To my Dad

Here’s my entry for the Daily Writing Prompt that Christine E. Ray is hosting on her blog Brave and the Reckless. The prompt for today was tittle of the children book by Eric Carie “Papa, please get me the moon”.

 

To my Dad,

 

With scraped knees

I would stumble back home

Crying at times

In a corner all alone

 

Falling and failing

Were a part of growing up he always said

Tickling, he would toss me

Up in the air

 

Laughing with him

The years have grown old

Replacing broken knees with hearts

And many a troubles untold

 

He has taught me to dream big as the years passed by

And sometimes we may not see eye to eye

 

But I’m so fortunate

To have a loving father as he

Who never denied but encouraged me,

when I said,

“Papa, please get the moon for me”

I find it very hard to write about my people, there are just so many emotions that words can ever express. When I saw this writing prompt for the day, I thought maybe it was time to try and express in words my love and gratitude to the man who means the world to me. I may never say or even show it at times but I do appreciate everything that you have done for me and my sister. And am immensely proud (and glad) of the way you and mom have brought us up. Thank you for everything.

PS: I love you Dad :*
