a poem by Ramya JP

So much of who we are
comes from being your children.
You made our home, a warm, safe place to be
Where it is alright to make mistakes
and learn from them…
A place filled with love
in so many little gestures
woven into the fabric of everyday life.
In the advice you gave,
in the guidance you offered
and yes, even in the discipline you chose
we love you dad.
