Fathers, the unsung heroes
Standing by the sidelines
Guiding those in the game of life
To work hard, toe the line and play hard
Providing for their family without question
Thinking ahead of time for all that is indispensable
Laughter, kind words, silent looks, gruff scoldings
Love untold behind every action and word
With eyes on twinkling stars in our futures
Prouder of our accomplishments than we are
Happy in our joys, worried for our failures
Disappointments portrayed without feelings
With a few, hidden tears on those treasured moments



Fathers, our unsung heroes
We hold you close for all that and more
You've molded your blood, sweat, tears and life lessons
Into a pedestal we look at and try to reach for every moment, every year
You and you alone, are My Hero today and Forever ...




I tried to search for quotes on Fathers online and surprisingly there weren't that many to choose from, which gave birth to the poem above. So this post is dedicated to all fathers, especially mine who've helped their their children grow into amazing human beings.

I love my Dad. Not just because he's mine but for the straightforward person he is : who always stands by what he believes in. I admire him for his planning prowess, his money management, his hard work, for trying to always make a special effort to right things when they go wrong, for always make sure we had everything we would ever need, for his jolly demeanor and specially for trying to be the best father, son, husband, brother, friend a man can be - always going that extra mile . I am what I am because of him and that can be seen in the strengths of my character.





After all this years, I have been blessed with Another father, whose given me the greatest gift of all time. A happy life. And considering the wonderful man my husband is Only a reflection and further proof of the astounding person my Father in law is. It's always a pleasure listening to him talk, to observe his dedication to his work, to notice his love for his sons and his wife that can be seen in his subtle ways and kind words. His joy at a new experiences is wonderful to share. As I listen to my husband regale me with stories about his childhood with his father, I note the profound influence a father has on his son. I truly appreciate the quality of life they have shared together and thus pass on to us.







I wish they can be as proud of their children as we are lucky to have them as our Guiding Lights.

lovely post!!

u spoke my heart.. ever single line of the poem i shouted, exactly! exactly!! esply "Thinking ahead of time for all that is indispensable" exactly how my dad is... wow!! amazing work adisha!! my heart goes out to this poem of urs.. read it twice.. still wanting to read again.. too good!!

well i always loved celebrating fathers day but always gets confused as to wat to gift dad for the occasion.. always end up in getting him a deo or pen.. no other options when it cums to fathers but then its g8 to have such days where ur telling ur dad what he means to u doesnt sound awkward.. i always feel a little awkward in telling my ppl what they mean to me without such occasions. such days gives us just the right moment to make others feel spl..

i esply loved the comment ur dad left for u... can imagine how good u would have felt after reading that :)

keep up d good work!

Fathers are like those rocks that even after facing the wrath of the sea stand their ground firmly. They might not openly show their love for us but they assure us a love filled life......well written...
