When hearts speak of gratitude,words lose their significance. When love takes up the mic of life,the only voice that rings in each heart would be love, love and love......

I could hear those impatient footsteps

Echoing outside the labour room

Those tense eyes were waiting for my first cry

But I didn't know who he was.


His eyes lit up at my very sight

His huge hands covered me like a blanket

He kissed gently on my forehead

Yet I didn't know who he was.


He celebrated my arrival

Hosted a party for the same

Invited a bunch of friends and relatives

Yet I didn't know who he was.


He taught me to walk

Forever in my life

He taught me to love

Everyone in my world

Yet I didn't know who he was.


He patted my head at times of victory

And let out a helping hand whenever I fell

He loved me unconditionally

And I loved him back

Now knowing who he truly is for me.


Life has taught me several lessons

Most of which still stay in my head

But that one heart's lesson was him

A battery filled with tonnes of emotions

The giver of my life - my Father.......
