You were my pillar of support,
Always ensuring I stood strong as a fort,
There can be no one like thee,
For thou hath opened my eyes to see:

The world in its amazing grace
and all the problems that I might face.
This is your day to play,
o enjoy it to the fullest as you may.

When I feel like all are lost and gone,
Sometimes I even wonder why I was born.
But then I recall your face,
this sets me back into my pace,

No matter how hard the road is ahead,
Nor how much blood that I may shed,
I will work until I go mad
for you, my one and only Dad.

I never realised how important you were to me,
But recently my eyes have opened to see;
The sacrifices endured in the life you led,
So that I can be protected and be fed.

I love you, though it is hard to show,
eventually I will prove it even if it may be slow,
My guardian angel sent to me on earth,
everything started from my birth.

I owe so much to you,
I cannot repay no matter how much I do,
There is not much more that I can say
Other than to wish you a Happy Father's Day!

Poet: Dwayne Tan Lih How
[Dedicated to our beloved father Tan Yew Kiang]
