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!!
