Life Lessons

You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The woman I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

Dad i love you so much and wish i could be there to give you a hug and wish you happy fathers day in person but since i cant i just want to tell you how much you mean to me. Youre not only my Father but you've become a cherished friend of mine and im so greatful for the friendship and love that we share.I hold the special memories that we have together in my heart and look forward to creating many more memories together in the future..Thank you for always doing your very best with us kids :0)Happy Father's Day! i LOVE YOU DAD!
