Happy Father's Day


I loved it whenever you held my hand as we strolled along in our outings.

I loved it whenever I stood on your feet and danced along with you as we "waltzed" together.

I loved it whenever we have whistling duels; you were the one who taught me how to whistle.

I loved it whenever you sang and I would record your singing sessions.

I loved it whenever I placed my head on your stomach and you playfully inhaled and exhaled, bobbing my head up and down repeatedly.

I loved it whenever you towel dried my hair whenever I washed it.

I loved it whenever you shampooed your hair; sculptured it into funny shapes then stuck your head out of the bathroom door and made me laugh.

I loved it whenever you scooped me up each time you found me fast asleep in the living room in front of the TV and then tucked me into bed. At times, you woke me up when you did that but I would still pretend to be asleep just so that I would feel the comfort of being in your arms.

Dad, I love you....

Remembering you on this day and always....HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

"It doesn't matter who my Father was; it matters who I remember he was"
- Anne Sexton

P.S. Happy Father's Day to all Daddies out there! Have a good weekend...
