Fathers Day Speech from a Son
Hello everyone, Good evening.
Everyone knows about mother’s day, I am not sure all of us even heard about a father’s day. Why is it like that? Don’t our fathers love us? Is their love is less compared to mothers? This might have happened because the way mothers and fathers treat us or express themselves.
Generally, a mother is considered as compassionate, loving and caring; whereas fathers like discipline and order. Our mother keeps us in the womb for 9 months, she takes care of us for decades. She is more vocal about her love, she expresses it every day. In contrast, fathers stay busy running the family, earning money and all. On top of it, they are not that expressive. That might be the reason we don’t realize the love of the father.
That was the case with me too. I was very close to my mother since childhood, who doesn’t? Right? I mean I am still close to her, in fact still she thinks I am her 4-year-old toddler. That’s cute, isn’t it?
I am 30 years old, married to a beautiful lady. I really never had a connection with my father. But recently my wife and I had our first child. My whole world changed from that day. My daughter is so cute, I don’t want to go away from her at all. But, I have job responsibilities too. I had to go to the office to earn money.
This separation from my newborn child was killing me and one day I realized that even my father must have gone through this and suddenly I was in tears. I never understood his love. Within few minutes I had a flashback of my childhood.
He used to buy me dozens of toys, every now and then I used to urge him to take me to theme parks, movies and all. On top of it, there was the home mortgage, car installments, insurances, taxes and what not. But he never said no to me. Now I wonder how he pulled up his financial responsibilities. If my daughter does same things now, I might not able to do all those things for her. How did he manage it all?
He often hear that men don’t cry. But now I remember that when I was 7 I met with an accident. I was hospitalized for 15 days. One night he was staying with me at the hospital, he might not have realized that I was awake. I saw him crying a river. But I was so stubborn that, I just ignored it. Now I feel so bad about my self. I never understood him.
I couldn’t sleep, so I visited him at his place. He opened the door, my throat was chocked, I was not able to say a word. I just hugged him at door and cried like a baby. Two or three minutes later we sat on the sofa, I said, “Dad, please forgive me. I never understood your love, I am sorry. I love you, dad, please forgive me”. He hugged me once again, kissed me on the forehead, smile at me and said, “it’s OK my dear”.
My mother was also happy that I realized my fathers love for me. We shuffled all our old albums, he was remembering everything. He had a story behind every picture, I was not even remembering when he took those many photos.
Being father is not easy, it’s a big responsibility. I hope I will be a good dad to my daughter. Friends, Do not repeat my mistake, our parent loves us unconditionally. Yes, mothers are more vocal, but fathers also love us like crazy. Do respect them, do take care of them in old age.
Thank you all for hearing me out, and Dad, I love you from bottom of my heart. You are my hero.
Speech on Father’s Day from Daughter
Good evening all,
So, today we are celebrating Father’s day and I am here on the podium to speak about my father. Where Should I start? hmmm… let me say he is not my father. He is much more than that, he is my guide, my inspiration, my hero and the most important, he is my friend. Sounds strange, right? I know.
In our country, not all fathers share the same relationship with their daughters. I dont why? Is it a social norm or what? I think I am the lucky one that I have beautiful parents. Most of the time mothers play the role of compassionate one, right? But, in my case, things are totally opposite. My mother keeps us in check and my dad is cool.
Generally, fathers don’t express their love, but my dad, as I said he is out of the world, he never stops showing his love. When I come home late night or traveling somewhere, he gets nervous. But as soon as reach home he is the same cool dad; but dad, I know how much care about me. Mom tells me everything.
There is one more thing I would like to share, my father is very protective of me, but in a positive way. He never forces it on me, he beautifully hides it from me. He gives me freedom and trusts me, and in return, I feel the responsibility to never break his trust.
I wish every girl in this world should have a dad like mine. I can talk about him for hours but I will spare you guys. Dad, let me tell you that, I am the luckiest person in this world to have you as my father. I love you, you are my hero. And one last thing I want to tell you when I will get married I will not leave our home. I am going to stay with you guys only. I love you, dad…
