"THIS ONE IS FOR YOU, DAD!"
Just now I am beginning to understand
some of the challenges you have had.
With all of the struggles that life dealt you,
I rarely saw you sad.
You are my encouragement,
my strength and wisdom every day.
With guidance and love in good times and bad,
you always know what to say.
You must have had times when you needed a shoulder
or someone to talk to about life.
You must have had times when we didn't understand,
and you needed someone to hold you tight.
What do you have to show for all you have done?
Do you realize the lives you have touched?
All the caring and understanding you have given in this world,
and you continue to give so much.
It must be difficult to be the only one,
we depend on for everything.
Do you know how proud we are of you?
I wonder where you've hidden your wings.
For you must be an angel ... that would explain it
Sent down from the heavens above.
To show all this world, your 3 boys
the true meaning of "Love."
The greatest compliment I could receive in this life,
and I hope someday it will be.
Is that I am as wise and caring,
full of love and understanding,
as my father was before me!
"I Love You, Dad!"
YOU truly are "The Wind Beneath My Wings!"
