Tears In My Daddy's Eyes


Published: June 2015

He was always my pillar when I knew I'd fall,
Always my anchor so strong and tall.
His hard face changes only for me.
His softer side, so careless and free.
He knows my dreams are too big for this place.
His little girl's leaving, ready to begin her race.
He knows I'll be thinking of him wherever I go.
I know I'm ready to do this on my own,
But still I cry and he holds me tight,
He tries to be strong, not a tear in sight.
I'm ready to reach for the stars in the sky.
He's ready to watch his princess fly.
It's time to let go, sure of a path to take,
But now I know, even pillars can break.
For when I drive away, trying to stifle my cries,
All I could see were tears in my father's eyes.

This poem describes exactly how I felt when I left home for university, my father is a tough man but I bring out his soft side. He had gone on a hunting trip but he cut it short just to see me off. I love him to bits. I am soooooo blessed to have him as my dad. I pray that more men become responsible fathers and give their children the gift of a loving dad.
