There was a day
When God had to see
Who could be my guardian
If not he?
Strength of a mountain
Calmness of a sea
Sweet as sugar
Who would bring out the best in me.
God knew there was nothing more to add further
his search was complete and he named him ‘father’.
He would shield me from every sorrow
Make me realise that there’s a beautiful tomorrow.
Whenever someone tried to threaten me or dare
Dad came to my rescue, for he was always there.
Ready to face everything
Whether a gun or goon
I just can’t thank God enough
for you’re a disguised boon.
Helped me come over every flaw
You could see the potential in me
That no one before ever saw.
Dad! You’re the shell for pearl like me
Thank you for being here, I love thee.
