For Daddies

Fathers, go give them a hug!

Thank you father:

fathers, daddies, and dads this one is for you

Dad, thanks for knowing exactly when to stop holding my hand and begin watching my back.

You carried me in your arms when I was little and you held my hand while I was growing up. Dad, I am going to be your pillar when you are old and I will carry you in my heart until I die. Thanks for everything.

I may be able to outgrow you in height one day but I will never be able to outgrow the tall contribution you have made in my life as a father. Thank you.

When you taught me how to play ball, I learnt from you how to stand tall. When you taught me how to ride my bike, I learnt how to balance myself through life’s turbulent spikes. When you helped me with studies, I learnt how to take charge of my own worries. When you pampered me with love and care, I knew that no matter what, my dad will always be there. Thanks dad.

You loved me even when I hated you, you cared for me even when I cursed you and you supported me even when I distanced myself from you. Thanks for everything dad, I love you.

Dad, in hindsight I realize the meaning of family when I think about the time you said that you were proud of me even when I failed. Thanks.

It is not possible to be a great father until a person becomes a great human being, and dad, you are both. Thanks for everything.

From tolerating my rants to keeping up with my antics, I want to say thank you to a dad who is just fantastic.

Dad, thanks for always being my ally during my wars with mum. I love you.

I don’t idolize Superman, Batman or Spider-Man simply because I know someone who is all of them rolled into one cool superhero, called DAD. I love you.

Whatever I do, wherever life takes me, I’ll never be able to be a person bigger than my dad.


Dad, everything in my life would be meaningless if I didn’t have precious childhood memories to anchor myself to. Thanks.

You supported me even when I was down. You smiled at me even when I gave you a frown. You hugged me even when I tried to push you away. For giving me a dad like you, I thank my stars every day. I love you dad.

Even though we have had the nastiest of arguments, I will cherish each and every moment. Because despite the battles and the drama, your love has always driven away my life’s dilemma. Thanks dad.

Dad, I expected you to step into my shoes but not once did I think about stepping into yours. As life taught me its cruel lessons, I now realize how much love for me you have always had in store. Thanks.

You didn’t just give me birth, you gave me a good life. You didn’t just provide me education, you gave me good life experience. It is men like you, who become loving dad and glorious fathers.

No matter how much I grow up, I will always be three things. The apple of my father’s eye, the reigning queen of my dad’s heart and daddy’s little girl.

I want to thank you for not granting me every single wish when I was small, otherwise I would have never toughened up to become the strong person that I am today. Thanks dad.

When I was a child, I looked forward to every day because I knew it would always start with a morning hug and end with a good night tuck from you… no matter how naughty I had been. Thanks for everything dad.

Dad, thanks for always understanding the things that I said, and even those I never planned on telling you.
