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.
