I long for the Dad you used to be-
So good to our kids for all to see!
You coached their teams & they won fame-
Even if baseball was not your game!
You went to Dad – daughter dances with pride-
And bragged about them with every stride!
You took us on vacations every year we all went-
Even when our finances were clearly already spent!
You celebrated birthdays & joined in the fun-
Even when you wanted to run!
You encouraged & disciplined with equal glee-
Especially when our kids wanted to go free!
You worked, paid bills & still kidded around-
I don’t know how you did it – I’m glad you I found!!
