Baba, my heart reaches out for you,
For your family, you’re a strong backbone;
In my point of view,
You’re more precious than any gemstone.
Like the touchstone, you’re a yardstick for fathers,
Someone I’m proud to call my daddy;
You chastise me,
A better person for me to be;
Even when the road gets topsy-turvy,
You remain diligent in all aspects of your fatherly duty;
With an unparalleled sense of responsibility,
You stand as the husband and friend
Of a mother among mothers.
You never equivocate
You say it the way it is;
You call a spade a spade,
Making the world say:
What manner of man is this?
You’re firm, fair, honest, caring, and friendly:
You correct me to keep me on the right pathway,
You deal with everyone the same way,
Your friends you never betray,
You show love to all that come your way,
After you correct me, you draw me close to play,
My heart blesses you every-day;
This one is for you; I love you daddy.
