To the great, real world, and wonderful dads, I doff my hat.
Busy and responsible, they are ever,
for family causes, of course.
Home-based, outside, on-the-road works, with coffee’s help,
awake they are kept
all year around.
To and from work, they are road’s warriors,
main highways, and interstate and local roads !
In and out of subways,
some dash through the tough cities’ commute
to beat the work’s clock.
Mornings to evenings and even late evenings,
they spend their Mondays to Fridays, working hard !
They may not be rich,
they are best and responsible dads,
giving their best all year long to earn for their families.
They may not be popular,
they are heroes to their sons
and daughters with their unique versatility
Work and family responsibilities,
they never shied away,
even though they are tired many times.
To bed, they go tired at some nights.
Sometimes, they may not even be appreciated by anyone.
Like committed warriors, whose loyalty
goes beyond some assumed good dads, whose reality is dressed in banality,
these real dads, with God’s help, are ready for the new day’s best and worsts.
A special poem written by Dr. FO (Dr.G) for all responsible and working dads all over the world.
