A dad is a person who is loving and kind,

And often he knows what you have on your mind.

He’s someone who listens, suggests and defends,

A dad can be one of your very best friends!


He’s proud of your triumphs, but when things go wrong,

A dad can be patient and helpful and strong.

In all that you do a dad’s love plays a part,

There’s always a place for him in your heart.


And each year that passes, you’re even more glad,

More grateful and proud just to call him your dad!

Thank you, dad… for listening and caring.

For giving and sharing, but, especially

For just being you!


M.K. Paul
