To Daddy, Happy Father’s Day


Decades have gone swiftly.
The adult me didn’t know you.
If I had one wish today.
I’d wish for time to talk with you.

I remember the scent of tobacco.
Or when you did not shave.
Your strength when you held me.
You listened when I talked.

You were proud of me.
Without a doubt I knew this.
I can succeed in anything I do.
You told me this often enough.

A father is strength.
I learned to be strong.
You stood tall and straight.
I learned to be truthful.

Good fathers, we are blessed.
Each day be thankful for them.
They protect and guide us.
I remember always being safe.

I’m sending this to you Dad.
May the angels deliver to you.
Your love still holds me.
My heart beats with love.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
