Wearing my white dress on my wedding day made me realize how fast time flies. It was only yesterday when I was sitting in your lap and you, playing with my hair and whispering in my ear how much you loved me.
My dear father, from where can I start? Being the woman I am today, I owe it all to you. Growing up showered by your care, having you next to me in every decision I had to take, every battle I had to fight, every beautiful moment I had the chance to live, is a blessing I can never be grateful enough for.
On my big day, I saw you standing next to me the way you’ve always had. Putting my happiness first, no matter the compromise you had to do. I knew you were torn with mixed emotions seeing your little girl leave her nest, but you tried to stay strong as a rock and proud like you’ve always been.
On my wedding day, I was secretly looking for you everywhere, among hundreds of people. In your eyes I found relief, and when you smiled, everything felt better. How could I reassure you that no one could fill your place in my heart? That even if I was about to start my life with a new man, nothing could replace a little girl’s first love?
The moments I awaited the most during my wedding day were the ones I was going to share with you. I wanted no one else than you to walk me down the aisle in my white dress, and no other blessing than yours before I was handed to the man of my life. My gratitude and respect for you were indescribable at that moment.
To whom would I offer my first dance other than you? A first dance goes to a first love, and only your arms deserved that honor. My head on your chest, I wanted to make you feel all the love I had for you. I grabbed you strong with the hope that my embrace would betray what words failed to express.
In your arms, I danced my single life away, knowing deep inside that even if I was ready to offer my heart to another man, there will only be one hero in my eyes. A hero that will always be my number one.
Happy Father’s Day.
