My Dad

<p> </p>
<p>The day I stepped into this world,<br />Everyone was cheerful.<br />But there was someone with a bright shine,<br />And with proudness in his eyes,<br />Said with a hopeful heart that<br />“She is my sweet daughter who will make me proud”<br />I still remember, it was my Superhero,<br />My 'DAD'<span style="font-size: 1.4em;">.</span></p>
<p>Crawling and Crawling on my knees,<br />You were the one who held my lil’ fingers,<br />To take those little steps.<br />But there were you,<br />Who gently held my sweet lil’ hands<br />And said<br />“My dear, the journey begins”.<br />I still remember, it was my Superhero,<br />My ‘DAD’.</p>
<p>When I was upset to move out,<br />And to cross the threshold of the house,<br />Everyone in their mind was having a doubt,<br />But there was only you.<br />Who fully had trust, and blind faith in me,<br />And said with a confident attitude to me,<br />“My dear, in your life you’ll always succeed”.<br />I still remember, it was my Superhero,<br />My ‘DAD’.</p>
<p>When I was broken and deflected,<br />And was about to quit the struggle,<br />There was only you who supported me.<br />Boosted me with energy and confidence, <br />And said<br />“You can do it, my child”.<br />I still remember, it was my Superhero,<br />My ‘DAD’.</p>
<p>Today I’m nineteen<br />Someday surely I’ll get my Prince,<br />But there will be one person in my life, who’ll always be my King,<br />And he is none other than you,<br />My ‘DAD’.</p>
<p>You were always there for me,<br />Whenever there was flood you protected me.<br />Now, I promise a time will surely come,<br />When all the efforts of mine,<br />Will make you proud and happier than ever.<br />And I pray to almighty that,<br />“May my DAD stay with me forever”.</p>
