Dad, you've always been there for me and I don't think I've ever really said thank you.
No matter where I was or what you were doing,
You came to my aid and rescued me.
But I don't think I really said thank you.
You showed me a path, I couldn't find alone.
You showed me how to succeed, without giving up me.
And strangely, I don't think I ever said thank you.
You picked me up, whenever I fell.
You took heat for me and were badly hurt.
But again, I don't think I ever said thank you.
I've been in your life for almost 29 years.
There are so many things that you have done for me.
And yet again, I still don't think I said thank you.
You have shared your words of wisdom.
You have taught me well on life's lessons.
Yet, I have this lingering feeling that I have not said thank you.
I have watched you rise, I have watched you fall.
No matter what happens though,
I am still grateful, that you are in my life.
You've taught me well to be who I am and again,
I have not said thank you.
I want to change that, right now.
THANK YOU DAD, for everything you have ever said or done,
To make my life better, the way it is today.
THANK YOU DAD, for showing me the right path,
For giving me the love and support only a father could give to his daughter.
THANK YOU DAD, for being the man that you are today,
For being the man, you've always been.
THANK YOU DAD, for seeing the light and staying with us,
And for helping me be the woman I am now.
THANK YOU DAD, for all of your hard work and compassion.
For looking after your family like a real man should.
And THANK YOU DAD, for teaching my children as you taught me when I was younger,
And for still teaching me today.
Life is a lesson hard to learn, but worth the effort.
As long as I have you by my side, nothing is impossible.
THANK YOU DAD, for just being you.
