REMEMBERING MY FATHER


I had a father,
Honest, strong principle,
I had a father,
Though not invincible,
He is a father who truly cares,
I had a father,
Who always shares.
Whatever he did,
He did for family,
So remember his deeds,
Honor your father regularly.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My father was a hardworking, generous, kind, honest, with strong work ethics kind of man. He does not talk much but he loves his children and gave us a childhood filled with laughter, trips, treats.

His childhood was not so lucky as he was taken away from his family who lived in China at a very young age. He was brought over to Malaysia and was adopted by my grandparents.

According to my mother, my grandmother who smoked, mistreated my father with cigarette butts. He never told us stories about his childhood. I guess it was too painful a memory to recall.

He passed away in 2010. May his soul rest in peace.

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
