The bravest of men, that I’ve ever seen

He is the bravest of men,
That I have ever seen

He has a way of taking care of me,
Just when I need,
Without ever taking away,
my independence.

He has a way of winning me,
With his reasoning,
Which any amount of force,
Might never do.

He has a sensibility,
Which the world wrongly believes,
That only a woman can have,
To understand another….
He understands me..

No, he was never a super-achiever,
He had his own fears,
His own insecurities,
Not the perfect brave man.

Yet, in his underlying hope,
In his understanding of everyone,
His empathy for all,
A simple sense of achievement,
Love for whatever he did,
And his understanding nature,
His inability to hate,
I found him the bravest…

And so they say,
I am Daddy’s favourite!

Friendly foes.

You and I, you know,
We don’t get along.
Something between us,
Or is it someone,
We both equally care for?


Tears run down my cheeks,
Following the path well trodden.

But now, it’s different,
I don’t cry in sorrow.

I cry for Joy,
For I find support from dark corners,
Ones, I didn’t know, existed.

I was watching you throughout that session. You're bit different and you deserve more than what you thought of. Critics are awake to disturb your sleep. I wish you to sleep well. Do whatever you like, as nothing can be redone. Of course nothing can be undone, be true to yourself and your dad. He also deserve more than what you what you thought of!
