When i was a baby,
You would hold me in your arms.
You gave me your love and tenderness,
And kept me away from harm.

You were the one who wiped my tears,
When i called your name to fight my fears.
You were the pillar when i knew i would fall,
Always standing beside me, so strong n tall.

You handled all the problems that came in way,
Your brilliance came out in what you would say.
You were the one who acted so strong,
Not a tear would you let your fall.

When i was in darkness,
You were my guiding light.
When everything went wrong,
You set it all right.

Looking up into your eyes,
All the love i would see,
How did i get so lucky,
You were the dad chosen for me.

There’s something special about father’s love,
Seems it was sent to me from someplace up above.
Without you dad i wouldn’t be the one I’m today,
You built a strong foundation no one could take away.

You are greater than all other men i know,
You are my dad, my mentor, my friend and hero.
