A Father Is…

To a daughter a father is a very extraordinary man

From the first smile that they exchange, and until the very last

He will always be her support, he will always have her back

 

My father has many lessons to bestow upon his kids

He taught us to ride a bike and to try to hit a ball

He taught us to be good sports, and to get up when we fall

 

He taught my sister to be silly and be true to who she is

He taught my brother to be kind and to hold a baseball glove

And he taught his youngest daughter the power of unconditional love

 

I remember funny moments, like our morning drives to school

Like our trip to San Francisco, so much laughter in our past

It’s those memories that are so strong, that comfort and will last

 

We’ve had our times that tested, waters cruel and storms so rough

But even in those darkest times you taught your patience and your love

And that to stay afloat sometimes you need to look for guidance from above

 

My father is a man of courage, love and faith

He packed up the truck and stood there by my side when I moved two states away

And when I wanted to give up on my dreams he encouraged me to stay

 

He is a joker a couch napper and a protector of his house

He is a leader in his work, a loving husband to his wife

He leaves glow of happiness in the hearts of all those in his life

 

Coach, Husband, Boss, Son, Brother, Uncle, Friend and many more

My father wears many hats, a stack of them so tall

But I think the one that says on it – “Dad” – Is my favorite of all.

 

 

I love you, Daddy!

Love,

Your baby girl

  • This was so beautiful and full of LOVE. Your father really does sound like an incredible man and father’s day is a great day to honor him. I will not be honoring mine today as we are not close by his own doing not mine, but I will send out lots of love to my grandfather in Heaven. My grandfather is who taught me about unconditional love and for that I am who I am today!
