You came into my life when I was just five,
Into a family torn apart.
But for some odd and unknown reason, you put us back together,
You mended our broken and shattered hearts.

I didnt know what it was going to be like,
I had a lot of doubts.
I had never had a dad before,
One who didn�t yell and shout.

I saw how happy you made my mom,
And I decided to give you a chance.
You accepted me as your daughter and you became my my heart and mind,
Without a second glance.

You have done more for me in these past 10 years,
Than anyone has in my life.
You have no idea how much you mean to me,
And how you�ve helped me through the strife.

I know your not my real dad,
it feels like it though.
I know that Im not perfect and sometimes we yell,
but you truly are my hero.

You do more for me,
than my actual dad ever did.
and the fact you�re my step-dad,
makes me a happy kid.

I remember when I was little we would joke around a lot.
Wed run around and yell about an elephant who sat on Dennis.
Wed laugh and run about again,
And call you Dennis the Mennis.

Youd tuck me into bed at night,
And rock me in your arms.
You taught me math that time on a piece of cardboard (I laughed so hard).
Then there was that time at the childrens museum, when you bought me that bunny, now, my lucky charm.

You are my dad,
The man who will teach me how to drive,
And walk me down the aisle,
You are the man who has helped me strive.

You are the man,
Who my children will call grandpa.
You are the man
Who loves me and my each and every flaw.

Theres so much more I want to say,
But there arent any words to tell you how I feel.
Just thank you,
For helping me through this ordeal.
