Father dear father

Father dear father.  (Father’s day special)
Standing tall at the horizon with an aura around
Wrapped in the mind emotions abound
Eyes talk but not the lips
Pain and laughter take the dip
Watching the waves touch and go
Children get blessed when he bestows
Tending the future with utmost care
Not the one who would share
The pain.
Absence of rustling of leaves
Sportingly watching a broken tree
Branches scattered or blown away
Seeds carried far away
Love and affection now much in demand
Never felt let down, still in command
Satisfied he feels and laughs at the time
Conquering smile is noble  and is sublime
Payback ! Can’t think but just a prayer
Should father me in next life, if GOD cares.

    Father is Guru personified.

    Yes, father's affection is sublime ans subtle, especially in our generation. He is always the role model of children. Takes care of them in every way. Does not over praise them but at the same time feels proud when they achieve. Love is the same even if they achieve or not. Takes them into his bosom giving them a confidence that he is there always for them.
    So, it is surprise lunch for you today. You also must be smiling (even if you know where they are taking you you would pretend as if you do not know!)
    Out of context.....
    My son used to give me a birthday card. It was I who took him to Archies, pretend I am not watching what card he is selecting and it is me who paid the bill. When he gives me the birthday card on my birthday I used to pretend what picture the card has, make all kinds of wild guesses. He used to shout "It is butterflies! I know you like colourful butterflies!" and give me the card with wishes.

    A special poem on a special relation of life, written in a universal ink, along with all those common, similar characteristics identified in all fathers...yes, we can't pay him back all the favors he bestows on us...fathers day and mothers day write ups are so special that i wish everybody should read, especially those who have the blessing and pleasure of their company in their lives, just to learn not to misbehave with them or not to speak aloud in front of them...a very strong fathers' day poem this one is!
