Father and son looking at a sunset.

Always There Dad

What can I say about you dad that qualifies as praise?
The way you show your love for me in many different ways.
The words may not be spoken to express that love for me,
But I know dad you love me, it's in everything I see.

I see how hard you work to earn a living everyday,
And I know where the money goes when you receive your pay.
You take care of the family as you work to earn a living,
But more than monetarily you just can't stop from giving.

Unselfishly you sacrifice your time and energy,
And always when I need your help you still have time for me.
There's nothing you won't do for me if it is for my best,
Even times when it may seem that I am just a pest.

You've made me realize that I can always count on you,
That I will have your full support in anything that I do.
To know I have your backing when I have tried different things,
Gives me so much courage as I try to spread my wings.

Never have you wavered in responsibility,
Always being just exactly what a dad should be.
You have always been there for me and you know it's true,
That is why I say these words with pride, "Dad I love you."
