Dear Dad,

Thank you!

 

Thank you for paying 1/4th of your income for my elementary school fee when you had a wife and 3 more kids to feed, educate and shelter. I don’t know how you did it? I guess I was too young to know.

 

Thank you for buying us new clothes for Dashain and wearing that same polo shirt you had been wearing for a couple of years. I still remember how you looked that Dashain. I guess I was too busy to show the new dress to my friends and relatives that I never asked you if you liked to wear that faded shirt.

 

Thank you for bringing that used HERO bicycle that I had wished for my 11th birthday. I guess I was in such a hurry to ride on it, that I didn’t even bother to ask you how many hours of overtime you had to work to pay for it.

 

Thank you for not leaving me alone for a single moment for a whole week when I was admitted to the hospital to cure my typhoid. Did anyone ask you if you were ever tired/sleepless? I didn’t.

 

Thank you for not traveling to see your sick dad so that you could save up the expenses for that first TV we wanted in our living room. Did you get to see your dad in his final days? I guess not, you were too broke to even call him.

 

Thank you for smiling and hugging me when I said, “I hate you” for not buying me an 80 cc bajaj scooter when all of my friends were riding on Hero Honda Splendor. Were you really smiling? I guess not. Then tell me why did you go to your room and sob? I saw you dad.

 

Thank you for sending me off to Kathmandu University for my intermediate studies, when I could’ve joined Tribhuvan University with fewer expenses. Do you have enough funds on your pension account now? I guess I wouldn’t know unless you tell me dad.

 

Thank you for not letting us know about your everlasting back pain so that you didn’t have to go to the doctor. Does it still hurt? I guess so, because the only time I know you went to the hospital was when I was admitted for typhoid.

 

Thank you for those tears you shed when you found out I passed my intermediate exam in first division. Are you still proud of me? I guess all parents are proud of their kids.

 

Thank you for sending me abroad for my higher education even though I knew you couldn’t afford it. Did you pay off your debt yet? I guess not. You are retired and you don’t have any pension fund left for your so called golden (?) days.

 

Finally, thank you for thanking me for my achievement. Let me ask you dad, do you think it’s worth devoting your past, present and future for your kids? I guess I won’t know unless I have my own kid(s).

Thank you all for reading and pouring your thoughts.

To those who cried/almost cried: Sorry it was not my intension.

To those who thanked their parents (I’m sure all of you did): The purpose was served.

 

 PS: ktmreality, there are two sides of a coin. Thank you for pointing out my other side.

hahahaha...buncha emotional people LOL....somebody pass them some kleenex please

on a serious-er note,
i have always felt, and this may be true to your case too, relation between father and son is a lil' different, in the sense that there is always this little hesitation in expressing love for each other whereas things are more chilled out to comfort level between a mom and a son. truth be told: we (grown up sons) don't hug our fathers that often as we do hug our moms, no? or is it just me? :P

i think it's a bit different with daughters though. i have found daughters more capable of showing love for their fathers than sons (which is why i want daughters over sons :P). of course, exceptions would always be there.

and on a personal note,
i have always been close/dear to both parents. and the feelings are mutual. moms of course are moms though. they cry as much as they can, hoina? and now that we are 7 oceans apart (haha..i know it's a corny way to put it), sometimes even a thought of her makes me..you know, go lock myself in a room and cry for a while.  :(

with my pop, it used to be pretty normal, until one day a moment of truth came and i came to realize how much he loves me. i know fathers love their kids but there are very few occasions we express things especially after we get older. that day was special. i saw tears in my father's eyes which was as transparent as his love for me was/is...he was speechless and so was i but i could see in him, the emotional father which i never saw or may be never realized before.

then i realize, damn, i have two moms. a father can be as emotional as moms! the only thing is, more often than not, they don't tend show that emotional side of them.

puntedamai, you owe me a kleenex now that i really feel like crying

Punte Jyu,

Was just going through some old threads and for some reason this one caught my attention.

An awesome tribute to the parents. I am not an emotional person, but this one didn't even give me a chance to think before I could feel tears rolling down.

If you don't mind, I am planning to send this piece of work to my father on this father's day.

Thank you.

Puntu,

I couldn't stop tears after second line. Really I always fell that our parents are only the one who truly loves us and unconditionally, I really miss them. I always want to stay with them.

Sometimes, while in US I fell that I may gain or get everything I want to, but the time that I could stay wiht my parents is irreversal and I am losing it the more days and years I am staying over here.

Sometimes, I just feel lonely missing them, I especially miss the way they coerced for food and greens... I hated back at home, but now I am hungry to hear them say " MERO LAGI EAK GASS KHAIDEYOU NA"

I love you my daddy and mummy as always!

Samada !

Punte,

All we have same feeling because we are nepali and have very soft heart to our parents but don't have idea to express. Our parent are very devoted toward us eventhough we are grown up and can support our life. It seems like their life is only for us. Sometimes I feel like crying when I remember them.

Thanks for your effort, very true story.
