A Tribute to Fathers


To the dads who have loved us from the start, whose discipline and rules came from the heart;

To the dads who work hard before going to bed, so there's money for food and a roof overhead;

To the dads starting out with their young ones in tow, who want to protect them wherever they go;

To the dads who don't have to speak when they're mad, 'cause the look on their face lets you know you've been bad;

To the dads who may have lost all hope, when their sick baby dies and it's too hard to cope;

To the dads who fight and serve so well, so our freedoms and rights will forever prevail;

To the dads we love with all our heart, for their example of hard work and doing our part;

To the dads who protect us when life goes array, and help us see things in a whole new way;

To the dads who act tough when your date comes to call, but is really a softy underneath it all;

To the dads who love us when we marry their son, and call us "daughter" from that day on;

To the dads who don't show their love with hugs, but you feel their support and know of their love;

To the dads who are older and have stories to tell, and the lessons we learn if we listen real well;

To those wonderful men in our lives we now say, "Thanks for everything! Happy Father's Day."
