Which One is My Father?

Some people had good Dads

Some people had bad Dads

Some had no Dads at all

Some Dads worked hard

Some Dads just played

Some Dads did both but in a different way

Some Dads stayed with our moms and family

Some Dads didn't and went away

Some Dads we still saw, others just went away

Dads come in all shapes and sizes

Dads have different ages

Each dads do different jobs and hobbies

In one way or another

In good or bad

Our dads have strong impacts in our lives

I was a blessed daughter

'cause I have a daddy like you

which in every way have good effects

Who didn't have any wings
Who didn't have any costumes

My hero is just an ordinary human beings
My hero is my father
Thank you, father...

When I Come Home

When I come home
I think about my dad
I think of all he did for me

When I come home
I like to hang out with my dad
I like to have dinner with him

When I come home
I love to talk with him
I love to share with him more

When I come home
I want to see my dad
and I want my dad to see me

Today I wish my dad would come home too
and wait for me as usual
That's what I want when I come home

When God Created Dad

When God created Dad, He took...

The strength of a mountain

The majesty of a tree

The warmth of a summer sun

The calm of a quiet sea

The generous soul of nature

The comforting arm of night

The wisdom of the ages

The power of the eagle's flight

The joy of a morning in spring

The faith of a mustard seed

The patience of eternity

The depth of a family need

and the Love of Himself

So after He combined all,

then He called it...

Frogs and Pigeons Story

The night was...
My dad told a similar story which is one of his favorite
Usually my dad would tell this same story to the new guy

But that night...
My father told me
When we all family sat down, had dinner, and ate fried frogs

My father told me as if I was the new guy
or as if he had never told it before to me
My dad was very excited to tell the story

That many years ago...
He was with his Hong Kong friends
They went to Bali Island

I've memorized the story from begin to end
and I'm about to say,
"Well ... you've told this story dozens of times to me".
But my dad's happy face made ​​me cancel it.

I felt that I should do is just shut up and listen.
Silence without cutting.
Listening to him not only in passing

My father then continue the story...
That in Bali they visited a restaurant.
At that time they were ordered pigeon menu

and after few hours waiting...
Instead of a waitress who came over, the dish did not come.
"I'm sorry sir, it has been a long wait, those pigeons are very hard, we didn't get them even just one", the waitress said.

My father and his friends chuckled of laughter to hear the waitress

"Do you want to replace with another menu?" asked the waiter confused and embarrassment

My father and his friends decided to order frogs
And in a short time the waitress served them with a number of very many frogs
A big plate full, lots of frogs stacked
Until they can not afford to spend

Whenever my dad told this story...
He was always laughing, it was a funny and silly experience in his life.

A few days later...
My father died while driving his car in a traffic accident.

How lucky I was...
Because I was sitting still and listening to my father.
So I will always have his smile and his happy face
for the last time...

In Indonesia, pigeons and frogs are common to eat

Father's Hands

We always miss his hands
Big and rough
Strong and sturdy
A pair of worker hands

Holding our hands
Guiding our steps
Gently touched our hearts
and wiped our tears

Playing guitar melodious
Exercising basketball and table tennis
Filling crosswords in newspaper
Teaching us English and math

Lift our high
once when we were a child
a moment ago with his grandkids
and forever for my mom

Saturday, August 25, 2012


He is pushing
He is encouraging
He is entertaining
He is supporting
He is listening
He is crying
He is reprimanding
He is scolding
He is warning
He is teaching
He is loving
He is my dad

Father's Suitcase

My father had a suitcase
A place to store his valuables
We never know what's inside
Because we respect the privacy of my father
Besides, we also have to guess what would be the contents
Definitely my father's precious treasure such as certificates, land, bonds, birth, marriage, letters, etc.

After my father died
For the first time
Our whole family had to open dad's suitcase
We were thumping as it turns out the bag is much heavier than we thought
Should some certificate sheets was not as heavy as it

Slowly we put the suitcase
We have just seen that the suitcase has a code
So far, none of us were notified of our father's suitcase code
We've been worried about whether we will manage to open the suitcase while we do not know the code
On the upper side of suitcase there is a neat row of zeros
My eldest sister tried to open and found the suitcase was not locked
Apparently my dad was deliberately not put the code in it
"Unlocked!!" my sister exclaimed

Together we look to see the contents of the suitcase
And we all are have the same reaction
could not restrain emotion and tears
because it turns out the father suitcase contained of our photos
his wife's who is also our mother
his daughters who is my sisters and me
his son in law who is our husbands
and his grandchildrens

Oh ... Dad ... evidently we are your precious treasure
We were on top
More valuable than letters and certificates that are in the bottom of the stack
With our silly and ridiculous poses
We pictured with dad
We pictured as a whole family have lunch together
We pictured on vacation
We pictured with ducks and geese in the town park

Now, after our father died
when our family was not complete as before
Really felt that family is the most precious treasure
Whoever will not be able to replace
How much ever will not be able to afford
Whatever will not be able to measure the value
Howsoever will not be able to change the precious treasure, 


Our Best Friend

Hey Dad!
Do you remember
When we told you our idea?
You always be the first to nod and agree
Take us to hurry
Get up and go

Hello Dad!
Do you remember
When we told you silly stories?
You always laugh and gonna said 'Haha'
and your bright eyes were glowing
Told us that you're enjoy them

And do you remember
When we told you our grievance?
You always be the first to sit beside us
Nothing you said
Just listen without interrupt us
Just keep quiet and listen

Hey again Dad!
Do you remember
When we have family time?
You always be the first to prepare
and you never be late
Seems you are greatly appreciate the time with us

How are you, Dad?
Even one day we were be so silence
and we told you nothing
You just closer near to us,
starting to tell your story
A magic story which give us more strength and power

When we remember all of those
We are really believe
and sure can't be wrong
That you're not only our best father,
but you're also our best friend

29 Years Experience

One day...
I feel weird so scared and I was crying
You shouted cheerful and comforted me
on the day I was born

I opened my eyes
and I was looking at you
You smiled so happy
on the day I learned to see

I moved my feet
I was trying to defend
You held me
on the day I learned to stand

I made little steps and has fallen
I was trying to get up
You lead me
on the day I learned to walk

Kid and childhood
Teenager and puberty
Youth and adult
You teach me right from wrong

Hard and soft
Anger and patience
Warning and advice
All for my goodness

Sometimes i feel tired of my life,
but you always support me
Sometimes i feel boring,
but you always cheer me up

Thank you Dad...
for giving me best experience
for 29 years in the world
and the rest in eternal life

Although it has finished,

my experience with you
will be eternally 

and forever stay

Your Little Girl

Your little girl was walking outside

You were holding her hand,

smiling gentle at her,

calm her heart of crowded streets

You always know her favorite,

strawberry ice cream and red balloon

When her little feet looks tired,

you held her on your shoulder

Mathematics was yours all time

Previously she was not,

but you have successfully make she love it,

by your smart and pleasure way

She loves Mom's cookies

She witting let the cake crumbs falling,

because she likes you wipe her cheek

Your tender touch makes she comfy

You tell her stories,

few fairytale and some eternal legend

Her eyes never stops looking at you,

you bring magic to her

You also guide her to ride,

her four wheels pink bike

Once you let her go,

you trusted her that she can

Throughout the day has passed

You show her how to love,

how to live and how to laugh

Not even once you make her boring

Stars was hanging low on the night sky and the race began

Moon shows itself became a juror,

between you and her looked for the biggest one,

which you would name it by her name

You bring her lovely doll,

to accompany her sleep and dreams

You gave your best goodnight kiss,

Then you teach her how to pray,

give thanks for today,

blessings for tomorrow,

forgiveness for yesterday

Years gone by...

Your little girl has grew up,

but she will never forget

that she is always and forever will be

Walked Away

I see everything
Remind me more about you
So many things
Have memories about you

You always beside me
when I stay
You always with me
when I walked away

Now suddenly you're disappear
Where are you?
I'm so fear
Can I find you?

Can't believe you're gone,
I lost you Dad...
Even the time has done
I still need you Dad...

It's like I'm dreaming
It seems not real
I don't know my feeling
I'm hurt and don't want to heal

Wake me up from all of these!
Help me and save me!
At the end I have to face this
The fact that for the first time you walked away without me

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Thank You Father

In your prayer, you call my name
In your wishes, you remember me
In all things, my name is in your heart.

Unable to return your love, Dad...
Your affection for me
In all sacrifice, for my happiness

Thank you, Dad...
I wish I have more time
and more chance

'Cause I can do is just...
...say you again and again
"Thank you father"

Best Figure

Still looked in your eyes
Hundred stories of your fight
Thousand times passed
But you remain faithful

Gasping for breath
More and more heavy burden
Something shaking your ways
But your feet stay stand

Wrinkled cheek and forehead describes your fight
Muscles and sunburned describes your hard work
Pains and sweat describes your weary
But your spirit never faded

You have understood all ways
Black and red
Dark and bright
Sweet and sour

Father ..., you're longing desire to live simply

Teach me to give than to receive

Always give thanks in every way

Compassion and sincere


Life's harder

But you're more forgiving

Father..., above all...
You are my best figure

Your Dreams and Hopes

Remembering my childhood
You hug and spoiled me
The beautiful moment
Make me soar

You tell all your dreams and hopes
Keep me away from temptation
Don't want me to fall and trampled
Wishing all the best for me

God please help
Bless and lead me
Make me capable
and will not disappoint you

I love you
I will prove
I am able to
I will... and yes I do

If that moment could happen again
I miss the atmosphere
Your love and affection
Wash my soul

God please help
to convey million dear for you
I keep the promise
not betray your dreams and hopes

With Jesus who became the lover of my heart
Despite many barriers ahead
Finally I finished & received my gift

Don't be sad!
Be happy for me!
His sacrifice has saved me
His love becomes my strength

Come on!
Let's dance and sing!
Today is a very happy day

Time To Come Back Home

Far away...
I have a sweet lovely Home
There was only joy & peace
Loving & caring

No hurt
No pain
No abuse
No killings

Now after long live journey
The time has come
The time for me
To see what I left behind

It's not because I'm tired,
nor saturate
With you by my side,
never I felt those

It's only because
The time has come
The time for me
Time to come back Home
