Dear Dad Poem

Good morning everyone. I hope you all have enjoyed basking in the hot weather we are currently having, I must admit it has been really warm this week, I have had like so many others around the world have had my fans going like nobody’s business just trying to keep cool, which at times as proven to be really hard, as it’s been very humid with it.

Father’s Day is on Sunday, and I thought that it was the perfect time to do a poem to all you fathers out there, This is a special day to show our dads how much they are loved, it doesn’t have to be showering them with expensive presents, the thing they want the most is to spend time with their children, as they miss so much time not being with them, that anytime they get to spend with them is all the more precious.

Father’s Day,
Is a perfect way,
For me to say,
How much,
you mean to me…

Dear Dad,
When God created you,
He sent me down the best,
He knew that you would love me,
Better than the rest,
He knew you would…
Never leave my side,
For your arms…
Would always be open wide
For me to climb inside.
To always protect and love,
You were sent from the heaven above.
Just for me to love.

The love of a father and child,
Is to go that extra mile.
