I’m sorry I haven’t written you in a while.
I watched as the season of water transformed into ice;
All your mails locked in the chest of heart.
Lately I haven’t responded to any of your letters.
Then the mails stopped – And I thought,
Maybe you stopped loving me.
Until today when I got that drawing you sent
with a note saying, “Happy Father’s day, Dad”.
I loved the drawing a lot – Thanks kid.
You were in the middle – Myself on the side,
Someone else on the other side – I figured that’s your mum.
I am not as tall to the sky as you drew,
but be certain for you I will reach out my hands,
Just to gather the stars by your side.
I’ll put an angel carved out of diamonds around your neck,
Most importantly, I hope teach you value isn’t cost,
But with the love it was given.
I heard your friends left heaven to be with their earthly father.
I am sorry once again I need to ask more time before I hold – See you.
Things in life don’t always go as planned,
And love!- Well, that I wasn’t sure when or how to tell you;
Because I knew you liked the girl I was with,
And I actually liked her a lot too.
But she wanted to leave – And I tried hard this time to make her stay.
I just couldn’t keep throwing fist in the air over someone;
Someone who has lost faith in all that we shared.
I’m alright daughter – And we will be just fine.
You’ll be amazed how things workout.
Same waters that froze into skiing ice;
In another season will melt into spring.
I still owe you a drive to the store in our pajamas on weekends,
Sharing a bowl of cereal with you as we marvel at cartoon network.
Still might not be enough to win the best father in the world,
But be certain I’ll give all of me to be ‘perfect enough father’ for you.
