Happy Father's Day to my Father... Perry Clarke

Updated on August 5, 2011

I wish all children could enjoy a day like today with their fathers

And most mothers around the world did not have to take on the role

as this familiar stories goes.

There are so many homes without a father,

however, there is a proper time and procedure for every matter

what is the main reasons for absentee fathers?

Reasons, beyond our controlled?

My father was always there for us,

Because he believed in family values,

That was over fifty years ago,

when families meant a lot; and was respected by society

No intervention, no social networking, no Government Agency to

tear downs our homes, and the unity within the families,

All Mama and Papa wanted for us to be home by nine,

and respect their home, and keep out of the night-line.

Because we satisfy in the morning with unfailing love,

that we may sing for joy and be glad all our day,(psalm 90:1:4)

That was how most of the families were back in days,

Now this generation being run by non laissez-faire family tree.

So unfortunutely the father's in most of the homes

around the world, is no where to be seen,

today or any other given days.

as many children have lachrymose moments,

wondering about their White Knights,

Hoping that they wouldn't have to depends on the nightlights,

to keep them safe, and out of harm way.

God bless my Father Perry Clarke,

A man who have done his best,

for the good of his family,

so my sisters and brothers and I are proud to

called him the strength of our family.

Big Daddy! P

      I voted up and beautiful. Your hub's title immediately drew my attention as on this Father's Day I too posted a hub. Your hub is simply superb. Like you I also consider myself fortunate as I had a wonderful father. After 11 years of his death I regret to miss an opportunity like Father's Day to wish him because in India it was not that popular then.

      Hi Darknlovely,

      I voted up beautiful, because what you said and shared with us was from a beautiful heart and soul. I know your family is proud of you because you have an Angel's Heart.

      That is what I called it when someone has such deep emotional feeling, and can share them to make others feel as if they were there sharing the love and kindness with your family.

      Thanks again,
