The heart of a father

It’s depth unknown

It is filled with so much love

But usually displayed in discipline


I could not understand

How my father could love me

And yet disciplined me

But I’ve come to realize

Out of the depth of love in his heart

Came forth the discipline

The father chastens those he loves


And even in death

He still showed great love

‘Cause he didn’t leave me in fear

I look back at my life

And all the times of love and care

I realize that discipline played a vital role

In making me who I am today


My dear father

I love and miss you

And wish you were here today

Till we meet again
