thoughts from my mind to yours


Happy Father’s Day!

I will always remember the look in my father’s eyes

the day he saw me as a bride

his little girl all grown up


And as we both were never any good

at showing our emotions

we  hugged and stood, with the lumps in our throats

without any question

of what was in our minds


Memories drifted in that singular moment

of warm summers and car rides

of unyielding banters with no ‘right’ sides

and my childhood took long strides

to get back in that moment where my father

was still looking at me…

with the love that we both felt

which never needed words

and was always held, in my father’s eyes.

Happy Father’s Day!

Dear Dad,


I am glad,

there is a special day,

where I get to tell you,

how much I love you,

and how much you mean,

to me.


To tell you,

despite all the disagreements,

we may have,

you are the best dad ever,

and will always be.


From my first flying kisses,

to the piggy back rides,

You were always there,

by my side,

always guiding me.


You showed me,

how to stand up to life,

no matter how tough,

it may be,

to rise after each fall,

to be a strength,

to the family.


You showed me,

to follow dreams,

with my eyes wide open,

and to try,

try, try, again,

till I succeed.


You were the first,

to read me poetry,

to tell me I am free,

to be,

who I want to be.


So Dad,

thank you for everything,

Thank you for being the best dad,

that can ever be!

Happy Father’s Day!
