Happy Birthday Dad

You’ve been there for us,
Through it all.
Always ready to save us, 
If we ever take a fall.
Though usually we are in trouble,
You often take the blame.
Seeing all of that,
We feel guilt and are filled with shame.
We’ve never ever told you,
All the things we’ve felt-
Like how we’ve always loved you
And that in our hearts you’ll forever dwell.
 You try protecting us from this cold hearted World
Which humiliates us and doesn’t much care
You’ve dried our tears and made us bold
For that, we bring you all the well-fare.
When we lost all hope
You patched things up.
You pick us up from slippery slopes,
When times got rough, to even stand up
 Now we’ve got a chance, and we cheerfully say
Happy Birthday Dad, for this is the day
We celebrate for you and merrily say
May you live longer and your happiness stay
Mustansir Burhani.
For; My Dad who for years has been there for Me and My family in happiness and sadness
