Sometimes, I get irritated.Sometimes,I just go away.Sometimes,I respond lazily.Sometimes,I don’t like to clean my bed.Sometimes,I hate to chop those vegetables.Sometimes,I hate taking bath before 12!
Today, as I booked my tickets, I am into the realization that behind all this, there is tremendous love that I have for you both. The love that is making me cry while I write this. There is regret, somewhere deep inside for having never expressed that love to you. I am not good enough at expressing feelings, but deep inside ,just like everybody else,I carry a loving soul!
Dad,like what you see while browsing Facebook pages, children uploading the pictures with their dad on father’s day, I may have never done that, but I love you! I love the way you try using the swift keyboard of your phone,I love the way you so sweetly bring the chocolates for me,I love pulling your cheeks,I love the way you start the online courses and end up saying ‘It bored me!’ ,I love your cooking,I love the way you share those Whatsapp jokes with me and mommy ,I love the face you make when,even in deep sleep,I and mom ask you if you shut the refrigerator door or not,I love it when you hide the remote from me while watching Kannada,I love the way we fight over the channels,I love it when you make that disgusting look when I ask you to wear another shirt..I love you!
They say, daughters are dad’s darlings. But since childhood, I’ve been saying ,”Both are my favourites” when those nasty aunties used to question me “Who do you like more?”
I love you.From those cute rhymes to everything..! No doubt,we have had some difference of opinions in certain matters,but my love stands above all these petty issues.I love the way you use your phone and save ‘Chandana’ as ‘Chan’ which later on gives me and dad a discussion point as to who Chan is!To all the times I’ve troubled you when it was about my hair,my ‘Look!How fat I’ve become!All because of your Guinness rotis!’ , the way you realize I don’t like to hear ‘do’s and don’ts and so skilfully web them into sentences,your math and everything! I love you Mommy!
Lately,the way we end up sleeping, laughing over silly things till our stomachs hurt..I’ll miss you..A lot!
I love you! :*
I am,today,whatever I am,is all because of your love,sacrifices,hard work,care,encouragement. I doubt if I’ll ever be able to love someone as much as you’ve loved me!
