The Best Father

The Best Father

You are the best Father.
We’re thankful for all you do,
From working hard,
To sharing your wisdom, too.

It’s so fun to be around you.
We enjoyed playing Ball and Hopscotch.
You smiled and let us win,
As you carefully watched.

You observed us grow
From little tykes, to big.
You were there for us, attending –
A game, a play, a gig.

In the living room,
Praying for us by name, we saw.
On your knees,
For our God you have reverent awe.

You protected us.
You helped us, in life, get through
This godless world,
As up, up, up we grew.

Now we raise our own kids
Just like you, dear Dad.
God gave you to us.
For this we are so glad.

You are the best Father.
We’re thankful for all you do,
From working hard,
To sharing your wisdom, too.
