for papa

Saturday, October 11, 2008

I'm a little melodramatic today. hehehe this post pays tribute to my dad. the ever first man in my life, next to God that is. No, it's not his birthday and obviously it's not father's day either. Anyway, who needs a special occasion just to tell someone important in their life that you love them. Correct! He's been in my mind the entire day and that's why I thought of writing something about my dad. Me and my dad are not really that close. He's closer with my younger sister, while I'm closer with my mom. But we're okay. I appreciate everything he had done for us. He takes good care of his girl's, and raised us well. I have high respect for him. I know he's not the perfect dad, he had his weaknesses and shortcomings too. He had cause us so much pain because of one common problem families usually undergo. The kind of mistake that men usually commit. But despite all of that I still love & respect him. Maybe because i could never erase the fact that he's my father and he had loved us. I really had seen that. I guess it's really true that when you love someone, no matter how much pain they have let you feel, forgiveness will always find it's way and love will always heal the wound. Today, I'm glad that things are now a little brighter. Mom and dad are now okay, family is still intact and getting stronger. I know I had disappointed him in so many ways but still he was there behind me when I felt like I was tumbling down. He helped me through it all. He even accepted me whole heartedly when i had committed a mistake that crashed his plans for me. I know I never became the woman he wished or planned me to be, but I know in my own ways I had made him proud. And i will make him proud of me even more. I'm sorry for my mistakes but I can still make you proud of me. I love you papa and thank you for everything. Ang Vic Sotto, Tirso Cruz of our life! hehehe

You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.
Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.
Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The womanI am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

I love you.
