To the Doting Father, A letter for you- #Atozchallenge #Blogchattera2z

You are stronger than you think

Dear Paa,

Do not cry or get upset when I will leave once I am married. I will be leaving your place but not your heart. Or can I say I am just going to a new place and will be trying to pace between the two places, two families?

Letter to dad, letter to father, letter to the doting dad, atoz challenge, Blogchattera2z, letters, letter to dad, letter to dad on wedding, letter from daughter to dad, letter to dad from daughter, father's day letter, letter to father on father's day, letter to father from daughter

I know I will be leaving your place and I am not prepared even though I am prepared for that day. It will be painful, that day will be the day after which I won’t be there for you EVERYDAY, I won’t be there everytime to control you or stop you from having sweets. I won’t be there to accompany you in our midnight snacks.

But Paa, I will be there everytime when you will be facing a problem. I will anyhow come to know that there’s something wrong even if I am not present. Paa, I won’t stop you from crying on the wedding day. I know it would be the painful moment for You and me.

I just cannot Imagine it now. But I know whenever you’ll see me shopping for my wedding or talking about it, there will be the silent tears in your eyes, everytime you’ll see be preparing for the moment when I’ll leave. But we both know, no matter how much we prepare ourselves, we are going to cry.

I know I will have the best man to hold my hand and support me throughout but, there won’t be the one will be crazy with me like you are.

Don’t worry about me when I am away from you. Your values are the best teacher for me. Don’t worry because I know you’ll be a call away.

Be like a River, Go with the FLOW, Always

This is what you always say right?

Thank you for constantly reminding to keep my feet in the ground while I look up. Thank you for always reminding me to stay calm, stay normal when I succeed, Thank you for reading my face when I don’t want to speak.

Thank you for controlling me. I want you to control me forever because there’s your worry, your love in this. How can I forget your calls when I am out.

Thank you for spoiling me but also letting me know the value of things. For constantly reminding me of my responsibilities, not covering me up when I am wrong, For making me stronger each day, For always preparing me for the worst.

You‘re stronger than you think, you have that power to make yourself successful and happy. Decide what’s right for yourself, decide what you want and Go for it. I will be there with you to support you but you have to choose your path. You have to fight your battle.

Thank you for the timely reminders, for fulfilling all my wishes, For Just being there with the trust you have in me.

Thank you paa for bringing out the best version of me. I love it When you always say you don’t need to be my son, You are the best daughter. From teaching me to ride a bicycle to me teaching you computer, how we enjoyed each other’s company.

Thank you for making me what I am today. Never let the child inside you die, never stop learning paa. There’s a long way for US to go. They always say I am like you. But I can never be like you. Even if I am one percent like you, I would be grateful. I know you have always heard this from me, and you’ll forever hear this.

And Do not cry when I leave, because A part of me always belongs to you paa.

    Aww, that is such a sweet letter. I am my father’s favourite child. When I got married both of us cried like little babies. I look up to him and even now when I am in a dilemma I don’t hesitate to call him. Great post!
