Happy Father's Day!
Happy Father's Day, Dad.
YOu are the reasons we are so strong.
No matter what mess we are in, you rescued us and told us you too made those mistakes when you were young.
You told us to look up and walk tall.
You told us to never take our eye off the ball.
You told us to face the bullies.
You showed us how to keep our tools looking new.
You took the garbage out and never once said it wasn't your job.
You drove us everywhere we needed to go; and places we wanted to go.
You taught us to drive, with a stick-shift, so we wouldn't get too comfortable with speed.
You taught us to do a good job, whether we liked it or not.
No matter how old we are, we feel whole and safe, knowing you are there watching out for us.
We love you, Dad.
For all you fathers, these and more are the thoughts your children have today. That tie you receive is the tie that binds us, the symbol we all jokingly pull out for this occasion.
