HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
This is your sixteenth Father's Day and you've earned each one,
This is your real job, yet you still make it fun.
There's been "knee," the Jo-Jo Man and marking his shoes,
There's been doctors and meetings and even blue twos.
You have counted the drinking fountains in parks near and far,
You have learned to make toast like a flippin' rock star.
You're up with your boy at the dawn of each day,
You're up with your girl when at night she's ready to play.
You're the kind of father I wish I'd had,
You're the one I'm proud to call my children's dad.
I love you.
I appreciate you.
