We may not shower him with praise
Nor mention his name in song,
And sometimes it seems that we forget
The joy he spreads as he goes along,
But it doesn’t mean that we don’t know
The wonderful role that he has had.
And away down deep in every heart
There’s a place that is just for Dad.....
Ive thought that all fathers are as good as my tatay but all these years i realized that we were just so lucky that we were born to an incredible and great tatay in the whole world. They say that parents are best rated when children spoke, that is right. They say parents are labelled good when they sent their children to schoold, has nice clothes and is provided by a three time a day meal. That is absolutely right. But what they failed to say is that, all parents are priceless to the eyes of their respective children and that no matter how they failed in one point - they will still be the best parents in the world.
Maybe in some point ive been a good daughter but in all those times that ive been a headache to them, they still understands me. Few days back, i realized that sometimes ive been so selfish that i always think of myself than of the benefit of everyone but despite me being one, i didnt heard any compain from them especially from my Tatay. My father seldom talks, he seldoms get mad, he seldoms nag at us whenever we are wrong, he doesnt say hurtful words no matter how bad we are. But i realized its not that he doesnt want to talk to, rather he just wants us to realize our wrong. To our dearly beloved Tatay, im never been vocal in telling you how we loved and cared you. But in this special day of yours, let me just tell you that you are the greatest gift from God. You are the very reason why we are strong, and everything that we are now.
Happy Birthday to you Tatay.
