My Father

I saw the first stars sparkled in his eyes
and the crescent moon as his lips curved a smile.
His voice so soft, he hushed me from my unwavering cries,
he was nervous, he knew, but for him that moment was all worthwhile.

His face so kind and loving, I thought of him as an angel,
an angel on earth, indeed he was.
He taught me how to walk, and he would catch me as I fall.
He never stopped believing and he accepted all my flaws.

His effort and sacrifices made me who I am
and those are the greatest gifts he had ever given me.
A different kind of love from other people will come,
but nothing can compare to the one that he had shown me.

Gone too soon, a hole in my heart he left
where emptiness dwells and sadness had come to stay.
Each time I think about him, I quietly wept
because it’s hard to move on without him each passing day.

I will think about his eyes every time I look at the stars,
I will smile when I see a crescent moon in the night
because I know in my heart, he will watch over us from afar.
A pair of wings he had earned, he will never be forgotten as he flies to the distant light.

    He may be gone but he will forever be the dad that you love and you will forever be the princess he always love. 🙂

  2. Haaaay. Thank you, Rosema. I’m really touched by all your heartwarming comments. A father’s love is forever. <3 Make sure to tell your father every day how much you love him. Yung papa ko tawag nang tawag, morning and evening sakin, I never thought that it's a sign.

  3. True! 🙂 Nakakarelate kasi ako. I cannot imagine the pain that you’re going through. Kasi for secen consecutive years, taon taon, may mga close to death na nagaganap kay Tatay. Iniisip ko palang na mawawala sya iyak na ko talaga. How much more if nangyari na. So… *hugs*. Kaya mo yan. 🙂

  4. Got choked up while reading just the first stanza… ;( virtual hugs to you, P.Bunnykins!
