A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

A father is someone that
holds your hand at the fair
makes sure you do what your mother says
holds back your hair when you are sick

he walks you down the aisle
and tells you everything;s gonna be OK
