When I was just a tiny kid,
Do you remember when,
The time you kissed my bruises,
Or cleaned my soiled chin?
You scrambled for the balls I hit,
(Short-winded more than not,)
Yet, every time we'd play a game,
You praised the "outs" I caught.
It seems like only yesterday,
You wiped away my tears,
And late at night I called your name,
To chase away my fears.
Though time has changed your handsome grip,
Your hair is snowy white,
You gait's a little slower now,
Thick glasses help your sight.
Oh, do I thirst for years gone by,
To be that growing lad,
Re-living all of the memories,
Of growing with my dad.
You've told me about responsibility
You've helped me be an adult
your love was glistening in your eyes when I was born
that you had a son that you can call your own
day after day you taught me things about life
Even though you were gone a lot you are my life
You're a great dad and I'm blessed
you have great patience and understanding
Not many dads are like the one I got
In fact none are like you
You're my special Dad
I remember when you played made snow men hockey rinks together
everything I remember is good.
I remember the laughter
I remember the smiles
And most of all I remember the love
Of the best Dad a son could have.
My Father Who loves to Love Me
For my father who's special to me.
Whose smile is as warm as a blue flame.
And crystal brown eyes,
hide beneath brown framed glasses.
Who minded least of all when I made a mistake.
and would brighten my day when it was gloomy.
Whose songs of melody sounded like a dream.
And to my father who loves to love me.
