He held my hand, he made me walk,
He taught me words and made me talk.
He was an angel, a hero in disguise
He showed me life, he made me wise.
He made he happy, he made me smile,
He never rated anything more and for that he walked that extra mile.
He never asked anything back from me,
He was unconditional, his love was always free.
He was hurting inside, he didn’t want me to leave,
He just bore a fake smile, he didn’t want me to grieve.
He couldn’t walk away, he couldn’t let me go,
He controlled himself, he never let anything show
He couldn’t stay like this, he couldn’t sleep at night,
He was waiting for my return, he kept praying to God to allow him my sight.
He wanted to talk to me, he hesitated to call,
He didn’t want to disturb, he continued to wrawl.
He never knew that I was coming back,
He was still waiting for me, unaware of my track.
He then saw me at his door, he suddenly froze,
He had tears in his eyes, all his lost spirits now arose.
He came running, he hugged me tight,
His wailing heart was now happy, he never again wanted to let me go not even slight .
He never knew my love for him, he never asked me for it,
He still always loved me and that’s how it seemed him fit.
He is my dad!
