Dad, I Miss You

July 17, 2008

My dad was not a good dresser
He was never trimmed and neat
With simple clothes and footwear
just to protect him from the heat.

He never spent lavishly

Nor drove a sparkling car
He never took any vacations
and never went any far.

He worked for long hours 
To make a good pay.
And even if he’s sick or tired
He went to work each day

He was well versed in English
and the arts
And wisdom is something
That he constantly imparts.

He was a simple man
And for riches he didn’t thirst.
He loved his family
And to him his family was first.

He had six kids – yes he did!
He inculcated in them
a true sense of right and wrong
and he often taught them
on how to be strong!
He never had much money
and his life was never a show
He still is the richest man
That humanity will ever know!
