Dedication to my Dad

I was not the perfect daughter.
No matter how difficult I was in turn you loved me.
We would argue alot. Through this I learnt how to defend for myself and loved ones.
We would not listen but I became agood support provider for others.
We were both stubborn and sorry was a word that did not exist in our vocabulary.
This allowed me to have my opinion and stick with it no matter what.
These qualities you brought out in me and I cannot thank you enough.

You had a passion for anything gadgets which I followed along with both of us competing against each other.
You had a love for food and coffee do I. If I wasn’t naturally slim I would have a belly like yours with the amount I eat.
Actin movies was your interest and so is mine which was well emphasised on all your surround sound and TVS.
Family and friends gatherings was where you really shined through and excelled in being you.

I’m sorry I didn’t always see the wonderful side of you. I’m sorry I may not have been there when you needed me. I’m sorry you had all those scars to show what you went through at hospitals.  I’m so sorry I was difficult at times.

Yet you fought to enjoy life’s wondrous gifts. You enjoyed being happy even if something was naughty or bad for your health. Many people love you from around the world as they see your funny side and wondrous charm.

In time you let loose your strictness and traditions to be modernised.  In time you let go of always watching and allowed me to grow.  In time I loved you more and more each day.

I miss your affections, I miss our dad daughter moments, I miss mum and I picking on you. I miss your dad jokes. I miss you buying me McDonald’s/KFC and Chinese takeaway. I miss our arguments. I miss you watching out for me.

I miss you loving me. I love you always.
