To All Our Family Heroes

Happy Fathers Day!

To the ones taking the risks,

to defend and to protect,

to the ones who labor,

to provide and to ease,

To the ones who live

with hearts ravaged

by undying love,

who give up solace

to make lives pleasant,

who govern and tame

their internal beasts

to remain dependable,

who smile to reassure,

even when they’re falling apart,

to all the originators of mankind,

To the heroes of the generations

of the past present and future,

to the pride of the territories,

Today a billion hearts and more

are filled with admiration

praying and hoping your hands

be filled with handsome fruits

from the labours of years past

and of now and the coming days

To you we smile

a Happy Fathers Day

Again we say

Happy Father’s Day!

    • You’re welcome. Fathers deserve daily appreciation and recognition but sometimes we forget to appreciate them when we keep thinking that they are carrying out their responsibilities. It’s unfair. Thank you so much for leaving a comment.
