A grand wedding is taking place in a ballroom……. The girl’s dad was been called to do kanyadan to giving his daughter to the groom….. Shiva is in dilemma even his daughter is just going to be married off to the guy that she loved….. But still seeing his only daughter getting married is something can’t be describe what emotion is it exactly by a dad…..
As a dad, I have watched her when she comes to this world……. The bundle of happiness is when I have her in my arm…. When she grip my finger with her tiny little palm…… The happiest moment is when she called me Dad for the first time….. The sadness when she entered a kindergarten with tears….. The best hugs and excitements when she passes her exams with flying colors.…..The proudest moments is when she graduated from her high school….. The miserable moments are when she leaves the house for further studies…… The luckiest moments are when she holds her cert in her hand on the stage for her graduation day…… The blessed moments are when she went to work and want me to quit the job so she can take care of her father……. And now seeing her in the wedding attire and giving her hand to the guy who are going to be her husband make me over whelmed , sad, satisfied and so on…..
The priest announces the marriage complete and my daughter married ready….. Now she goanna leave the house forever and enter a new house…… A house which will bless for having an angel like her….. During the send off, she cried a lot but she composed herself and said “I’m not goanna leave you both, I will come every day to torture you both….” My son in law to laugh seeing her cute antics to make us smile…..
At night, I couldn’t sleep…… I wake up from the bed and seeing my wife was sleeping peacefully…. It’s must be hard for her seeing her only daughter leaving the house to her in law today still she look stronger than me…… Maybe It’s all because she also a girl who leave her parents and who had been go through the same pace as her…… So she able to accept it….. With that thought, I make my way to her room which she used to sleep before…..
I entered her room and open the light….And I was shocked to see her and my son in law there….. I thought I was dreaming for a while seeing her there…… but for my mistake it’s not….. She was there seeing me with shock to….
Dad: Darling, what you both here…. You both should be in your house right…..
Daughter: Dad, Why you are here with a pout……
Dad: I… I…. Start to stammer…. I was missing you….. so….
Daughter: So…. You come here….
He just nods a yes because he couldn’t speak….
My son in law moves toward and hugs me from side….
Son in law: Dad, actually you daughter was planning a surprise for you but you come on a wrong timing…. That’s why she pout…..
Dad: I’m sorry dear…. Why you want surprising me?
Wife: because tomorrow is Father’s Day…. While entering the room….
Dad: I’m sorry dear and thank you so much both of you…. While hugging his daughter and his son in law…..
After celebrating the father’s day, my daughter went to her house….. Before she leaves she didn’t forget to hand me her gift….. As every year she will give a gift and a letter with poems….. But this year more special she gives as a bride who newly wedded with her husband…..I open the letter in my study room….
I’m the apple of your eyes,
I’m your little pearl,
‘I’m Daddy’s little girl,
I hide my pain,
I hide my sickness,
I hide my tiredness,
I don’t want to show you all that,
You will knew it….
And I would not change a thing,
You’re blame yourself,
Don’t dwell on things which you cannot change,
As human it’s all are normal things,
I know you will be sad…
I know your happiness lies in me…
I know you will be helpless if seeing me in vulnerable states….
Seeing you broken is the last thing I want saw….
That’s why I always stay happy
I do a lot…………….
I drive you nuts,
I’ve turned you grey,
I’ve made you proud,
I’ve spent your pay,
I’ve stressed you out,
I’ve hurt you bad,
I’ve made you laugh,
I’ve sent you mad,
I’ve made you smile,
I’ve made you sob,
By doing this all……
Most of all you’re my love of life….
The best Dad that anyone could have….
I love you Dad before, today and forever…
I might find my prince ready
But you always will be always a king of heart…..
I’m so lucky to have you in my life…
Love you Dad…….
From your one and only Sweetheart…..
He was truly blessed to have a daughter like her in his life….. His life was complete with his little child….. He satisfied with his life ready….. There nothing he wants more than his daughter’s happiness….. It’s truly indeed that now his happiness his lied beneath his daughter’s happiness…. Everything fresh like yesterday only when he holds her on his hand for the first time….. A father always loves her children no matter what…. Will always work hard to make her children have a best future…..As a father I never show my helpless but still my daughter understood me well…. Thank You God for giving this opportunity to be “A DAD”……….. The best thing that ever happened in my life….. Being A Dad……..
