My Father

The man I lived with for sixteen years,
The one who taught me to defeat all fears,
Never did I see anger on his face,
His raised voice was always a rumour at our place,
To send anybody empty handed, was not a tradition he pursued,
For getting a yes as an answer, it was not required to check his mood,
A radiant smile always made his face glow,
As if he had nothing else to show,
His blessings are the reason for all that I receive,
His demise is the truth, I still find hard to perceive,
His life was a bundle of joy to cherish,
The wisdom he gave me can never perish,
God came to this Earth to live as my father,
And since then, I am just trying to be one like him rather.
