Here’s wishing all of the “dads” a Happy Father’s Day.
Any man can be a father
but not all can be a dad
it takes a special kind of guy
to love you when you’re bad,
to make you smile with a silly face
when he knows you’re feeling sad
or to keep you focused on what’s right
even if it makes you mad.
But, there are way too many fathers
that don’t care if you do bad
and they can’t and won’t be bothered
when your feeling down and sad,
because they take no interest
and that alone, should make you mad
for there’s one thing I know for sure
it’s that all kids need a dad.
And so, if you are a lucky one
and for whom life’s not too bad
then you should thank God everyday
for that guy that you call dad
and for those who’re not so fortunate
be oh, so more than sad
for they will never know the love
that you and I have had!
