Strong arms under yours
When the swing comes down,
Chocolates and kisses
To erase every frown.
Pink frills and blue trainers
Screw drivers and hose pipes,
From tricycles to four wheelers
Guiding you throughout life.
A stern voice and a soft face
A strong hand with yours laced,
Your toes on his, you learn to walk
Black slates and hands covered in chalk.
Its a gentle love, soothing and shy
He gives you wings to soar in the sky.
Like unforgotten lyrics and melodies of home,
Your father’s love, is a sacred scripture carved in stone.
(Father’s Day Special)
