Thank You For Being My Dad


You provided me a home and for that I stipulate that you are my dad. You took the time to teach me and for that I give you my respect. You spread joy in my life and for that I suppress all of our wonderful memories. You encourage me and for that I deter from humiliation our family name. You concealed me from danger and for that I showed you honor. You allow me into your heart and for that I protest against anyone who saids your not the best dad in the world. You assisted in helping me become the women I am today and for that I will not stop from waiting another minute to tell you, 'Thank you for being my dad'.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
