My Hero My Father

10005851_10154003365120314_1814840008_oFathers are always protective, always on the look out for you, for his family, for his loved ones.

I always idolised my father and always will.

Whoever in my age group can relate to what i feel.

Remember what you couldn’t do, your father did it in a blink of an eye.

Remember how strong he was?

Remember his anger?

Remember how he will do anything to make you happy?

I am on my late 20s and i still do not realize that my old man is getting old.

I still expect him to do what he was doing 10 years ago.

I think consciously, i am in denial.

I don’t want my dad to grow old.

I want my dad to be as he used to be, since i was a kid.

I realized that most of us do not realize that our parents are getting older. We always say that we need to be there for our parents when they grow old, either some goes with it as tradition or culture, or do it as a ‘duty’ but some do it because they just care.


Our Parents needs us, but they prefer play a low-key role in our life as we get older.

Some of us, don’t even realize how lucky we are to have them by our side, guiding us. Some of us, prefer ‘socialising’ with friends on our free time, but never realize that we owe them some of our time too. Some of us do not realize that at home, there are some chores that they can no longer do, yet they make the effort and let you rest. We will all miss our parents when they will no longer be by our side, but what’s more important is if you are by their side now? Are we?

  1. I’m thinking… I might send this to my dad… and my mom…
    I do realise that they aren’t getting any younger and that our time is limited with them, and it’s pretty nice that somebody actually put the words out there expressing what we subconsciously know but won’t admit… It’s also kind of scary to acknowledge what life would be like when they leave… They just seem so strong.
