You may think I don’t see,
Or that I haven’t heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I have got every word.
Perhaps you think I missed it all,
And that we’d grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It’s written on my heart.
Without you, I wouldn’t be
The person I am today;
You have built a strong foundation
No one can take away.
I’ve grown up with your values,
And I’m very glad I did;
So here’s to you, my dear father,
From your forever grateful daughter.
I love you, and want you to know,
I feel your love wherever I go.
Whenever I’ve problems, you’re there to assist,
The ways you have helped me would make quite a list.
Your wisdom and knowledge have shown me the way,
And I’m thankful for you as I live day by day.
I don’t tell you enough how important you are,
In my universe you’re a bright shining star!
