Happy Father’s Day, Dad!


Dad I salute you, in honour I stand,

A man among men, you excel; Where others may have fallen, you stood firm,

Where others have stumbled, you ran well.

Dad, if I can be just half the man you are,

Possess a fraction of your patience and care;

Then, no doubt I’d be a sterling example,

Of faithfulness, fortitude, true and fair.


I know you’ll downplay your strengths,

Not wanting to appear arrogant or proud;

But Dad, you need not self-proclaim,

These speak for themselves lavishly loud.

Thank you for providing, protecting o’er the years;

For shov’ling your own needs selflessly aside;

Without a verb'lised mumble, a murmur, a moan,

You lovingly endeavoured, your family’s needs to provide.

As a husband, your unwavering faithfulness,

Shone brightest when it counted most;

When mom needed a pillar, a prop in her pain,

You were a pylon, of which few wives can boast.


Indeed, Dad I salute you, in honour I stand,

I’ll ever praise God for the gift you are;

I know if your sons attain a fraction of your traits,

We’d have exceeded many others by far.
