He held me tight in his big arms,
That morning I was born,
I’ve asked him how he felt that day,
He said Love made his heart so warm.
I’ll never forget the time,
He taught me how to tie my shoes,
Or when he brought my first bike home,
And when he painted my new room.
Outside he looks hard and stern,
But inside he’s thoughtful and kind,
Few may witness his deep softness,
The way his daughters are inclined.
When tears streamed down my face,
He’d wipe them away with his hands,
And softly say to make me know,
Don’t cry- Daddy understands.
He walked me down the isle,
On my beautiful wedding day,
And he sang to me when we danced,
What a beautiful song he chose to play.
He was always ready to cheer me on,
Patiently listen when I was sad,
His strength and Love were always there,
I’m so grateful that he’s my Dad.
