My Resilient Man (dedicated to my father)

The driving force,
A significant influence,
Responsible, caring,
Yet strict at times,
Allowing me to grow,
And expand my horizons,
Papa, you simply dazzle.

*****

Not only mathematics or social studies,
But, every aspect of my life,
Be it music or dance,
Compassion, tolerance, charity or benevolence,
A doorway to an infinite realm of knowledge,
These valuable lessons of life, I attribute to you,
Papa, you simply dazzle.

*****

Teaching by example,
Loving without reservation,
Letting me find my own way,
Scolding me on breaking the rules,
Shining with pride as I succeeded,
Having faith in me, even as I failed.
Papa, you simply dazzle.

*****

My richest inheritance; your love,
Marching step by step with me forever,
Always turning me into a little woman,
Then back again,
I don’t need to believe in Santa Claus,
Because YOU are my Santa Claus,
The greatest gift of GOD…
Papa…, you simply dazzle.
