By Abdulaziz Hafsat Usman
I am glad that you’re my best
One in a million, daddy
You are the very best, my pearl
I have got something to tell the world
One day I will take care of you
When you’re old with dentures
And when your age begins to wrinkle
then you will still be my hero.
For I rate you my number one
You are a heroic in every ways
Your words are as polish as diamond
On your shoulder I always depend
Whenever I hear about heroes
And the great things they have done,
It reminds me of my father
For he’s my hero.
