When you were born, you were called the family's pride,
You are a SON, you are their child.
Right from school, you were taught that "Be strong, boys don't moan!",
From standing last in queues to giving up your seats for us, you have grown.
You fought her, made arguments but BROTHER she knows all your secrets,
You made a promise to protect her, ever since she was a fetus.
From dropping your drunk bestie home to walking your colleague to her place, you have made us feel secured everytime,
Not bothering about yourself in those late bedtimes.
When someone gave us a lustful stare,
You came in the middle, asking how did they dare?
You are a FRIEND, you held our backs,
You hit them hard, until their bones crack.
As you grew older, you started crushing,
Even your compliments were mistaken for flirting.
You were molested, deprived of your rights,
Nobody believed you, just because you are a boy... Oh, is that right?
You have been cheated and been heartbroken,
But you hid that pain behind your smile and words left unspoken.
Boys don't cry... "No, they do but they don't show it any day"
Without a revenge, you said "Everyone deserves better" and you walked away.
You fell in love,
Saved your pocket money for those lovely dates,
Made her feel special forgiving the little wait.
Sometimes carried her heavy bag, even though you were tired that very day,
Yes, you are her BOYFRIEND,you make her feel secured everyday.
You earnt your best and gave her the world
You know she left her family to marry you,
you love her like no one ever would.
You shoulder responsibilities, you are her HUSBAND.
You make for the best living just for the happiness of your family,
You are a FATHER, you bought all modern luxury.
You are a MAN,
You protect your loved ones like a warrior protecting his kingdom with all his might,
From the scorching breath of dragon's ignite.
