49 beautiful and tiresome years.
an orphan then,
a scholar you came to be.
a doting husband then,
an amazing Father you are to me.
it’s all the same,
through time and time again,
i’d say the same to you again.
dad you’re my inspiration,
the one who lets me live my aspirations.
no excuses you tell me,
to shout and brace hard til I am my own inspiration.
I wish you love,
I wish you health,
I wish I’ll make you prouder in the years ahead.
