O Father

O Father

A Poem by Darius Chinoy

This was written for my father in 2001.


When I was young

I idolized him

When I was a teen

I hated him

And now that I am a man

I want to be like him

Years ago you waited anxiously

For my first yawn

When I came into your arms

You held me graciously

I feel privileged to be your first-born

You honor me by giving me your name

I promise to carry on your legacy like an immortal flame

You named me after royalty

And showed me your loyalty

You always make me feel what I am capable of

When I need some one real bad

I have to just call up Dad

O Father

For you I will go farther

I understand now the love you have for me each day

I am grateful to you in every way

Love your only son
