For my Dad

Posted: Thursday, June 18, 2009

How do I tell you

How much you mean

For teaching me things

Like the Star Trek theme?

For telling me to 'not give up'

And helping me along

(Even when I didn't want it)

With a hug and a song.

For playing those games

Like Barbies and house,

And bravely saying 'no'

When I asked for a mouse.

For coming to the sports

Every single event.

For cheering and being silent,

Even when you wanted to vent.

For showing me that being smart

Is not a bad thing,

But sarcasm can get you in trouble

Even when your King.

I can't really repay

All those things you've done.

All I can do is say 'thanks,

I love you a ton.'
