Papa you are my hero


I was only 3 when you made me hold gym rings,
You said I could swing in them and I really did

A toy horse most kids’ admiration,  you bought for me
I rode until I fell,  you asked me to try again,

You raised me like a son
Taught me honesty,  boosted my confindence –

Even when mom left us,  you didn’t break down,
Neither could I, because I wanted to pretend strong;

For you papa our lives had been secure
We never saw obstacles coming our way;

You were always our shield papa,
I never saw hero who could do that.

To be a hero you don’t need gun,
Love and care for the family can make you one.
