From my first cry till his last breath
Moulding me, his beautiful progeny
Creating a jewel like a Goldsmith
Earning my smile, his only money.
Going on work selflessly
Shedding his sweat endlessly
Returning home in the end
To dine together with his family.
Flaunting his kid, he did swank
Showing off as if an army rank
He felt no less than a commander
While putting me up on his shoulder.
All grown up now, still a kid to him
No-one knows me any better than him
Now, much more prudent and kind
He reads my face, he reads my mind.
Always smiling like a hero
Always having fun
Never shared his sorrow
So we thought he had none.
But that wasn’t exactly the case
When he sat alone in the night
One could guess it from his face
That something was not right.
Leading his family to happiness
Worrying about career of his lad
Making sure I’m unable to guess
Such a human being is my dad.
Whenever I was about to fall
He stood strong as a wall
Supporting me for every right thing
For smile on my face he had to bring.
Raising me from when I was zero
The man I call dad, is indeed a hero.
