English Poetry

HE DIDN’T BRING ME INTO THIS WORLD,
BUT HE WAS THE ONE TO SHOW ME THE WORLD.
HE IS NOT THE CENTRE OF MY HAPPINESS,
HE IS THE ONE GUARDING IT.
HE NEVER EXPRESSED HIS LOVE,
BUT HE KEPT LOVING ME.
HE NEVER WAS MY FRUITS OR FLOWERS,
HE IS MY ROOTS KEEPING ME STEADY AS I GROW TALLER
AND TOUCH THE SKY.
I WAS NEVER THE APPLE OF HIS EYE,
I WAS THE STAR OF HIS ENTIRE WORLD.
HE SHOWED ME HIS DREAMS,
YET FULFILLED MINE EVERYTIME.
HE WAS NEVER THE MOON OF MY SKY,
HE WAS THE SUN REFLECTING IT.
HE WAS ALWAYS BEHIND THE SCENES,
HIS LOVE UNDERRATED.
JUST AS THE GORGEOUS CURTAINS
HIDE THE ACTUAL BEAUTY OUTSIDE.
HE CRADLED ME TO SLEEP WHEN I WAS BARELY A BUD
AND NOW THAT I’VE GROWN INTO A FLOWER,
HE STILL COMPROMISES HIS SLEEP FOR MINE.
EVERYTIME, HE HURTS ME,
HE IS THE ONE HURTING.
MY GALAXY IS A SHRINE OF HIS PERFECTION.
HIS EVIDENCE OF LOVE MIGHT JUST BE
A SERIES OF ANNOYING EPISODES,
YET THE BEAUTY DISGUISED IN IT SAYS ENOUGH.
HE IS THE LIGHTS OF THE DARK LANE I WALK EACH NIGHT.
HE IS THE SPOTLIGHT EACH TIME I STAND IN FRONT OF A CROWD.
HE IS THE ONE WALKING AHEAD OF ME ON THE THORNY ROAD.
HE IS THE SHIELD PROTECTING ME FROM THE CRUELETY OF LIFE.
HE WANTS THE BEST FOR ME AND ALWAYS SAYS NO,
YET I ALWAYS GET ALL I WANT.
MY MISTAKES HAVE WOUNDED HIM DEEP,
YET HE SMILES EVERYTIME I LOOK AT HIM.
HE IS THE KING, YET HE IS JEALOUS OF MY PRINCE.
HE IS THE REASON MY STRENGTH GROWS,
HE IS THE REASON MY FIERCENESS SHOWS.
HE IS MY SOURCE OF CONFIDENCE,
AND THE REASON IM SO PASSIONATE.
HE IS NONE OTHER THAN MY SUPERHERO, MY DAD.
HAPPY FATHERS DAY.
