Its been so long,
i should have written earlier
but am doing now,
better late than never,
Its a month since I Left,
How time flies, how its snatches away beautiful moments
I keep reminding me that I am a big girl,
I need to know how to pay the bills,
It will take time to adjust.
Now I understand why you kept insisting I re check the taps before leaving,
Now I uunderstand why you frowned when lights were left all night
Its the hardship of survival,
But am glad that you kept reminding me,
Now i have to check my own
Lest i stretch my arms in aid of the bills.
I never liked how hard you knocked on my door, early mornings,
I used to groan and complain
Today my alarm is my saving grace,
It took so long to appreciate this small things,
How i wish time would flow back just for a day,
But i have to live with it, and be the daughter every dad wants
then i know you will know it was never in vains,
As i conclude this,
I am doing my school work, because discipline was our first motto,
I have to let go the coffee dates, because my books need not complain,
But dad, can I go later on after am through?
I know you understand this things.
Dear dad thanks you for your patience,
Thank you for teaching me,
Thank you for being my role model,
Now i gonna go so you be proud some day
Good bye dad,
I will see you soon.
From your beautiful daughter,
