You make us the center of your universe! And expect nothing in return, not even flowers let alone a dedicated day! How do you do it Papa?
You smile when I hug Mum and get selfies with her – not even for once thinking, why didn’t I get one?
We don’t make it easier for you, do we Papa?
When we complain about your affection as it gets divided towards your own parents, towards your siblings and friends… and expecting all that we do everyday. How do you then swiftly balance it all out Papa?
Yes, you do get glued to your phone, reading & watching all that, we think is not important, but for you they actually are! May be they are, but we miss – you looking at us and listening to us with that undivided attention which you once got us used to Papa…
How do you manage not to feel bad for not buying what you thought would look good on us and instead got a criticism for your choice in return! You yet manage that smile at the checkout counter and a quick disappearing frown when your eyes meet the figures on the bill Papa…
The twinkle in your eyes with all the achievements, the expressionless face on all the losses and child like excitement for every activity we do together – says a lot about how you feel even thou you struggle to bring it all up in your words Papa.
Thank you for all you do, Thank you for all you have done, Thank you for your big heart and Thank you for simply being there in your own special way for all of us and every time… Honestly, how do you do it all Papa?
