With the shiny lantern of wisdom
Creeping through the dark tunnel of life
To meet the world as far as I could;
Boulders which curbed my path
Kick them off as tiny round pebbles;
Dad, You navigated me when I was young.
Deem the pain of others as mine;
Share the blithe of life among all;
Aware us all breathing same air and dust
Living on same Earth, under the same sun;
You taught me things which were not in books;
Dad, You were my first alma mater that I could trust.
To be truthful in front of a bullet;
Not to be greedy for power or wealth;
Content with reap what I've earned;
Fill my heart with love not with hate;
I adore your vision though hard to lead;
Dad, I follow you as FATHER of my life!
