About the Poem
This was a tribute on Father's Day to a wonderful father whom I so dearly admire.
|by Kit McCallum|
|I know it’s not often enough I share with you Dad;
Seems long ago, when I was young;
I looked to you for guidance and love;
I listened to you;
Relied on you;
And craved for your attention.
And as I grew, you stood patiently behind me,
Allowing me to stretch my wings;
Test the waters,
And make my mistakes.
Thank you for loving me as you do;
Enough to let me take a fall
While you waited in the sidelines;
Enough to watch quietly
As I matured and learned.
It may not be often enough I share with you Dad;
But thank you for being the father that you are;
A father whom I am proud of ...
A father I can still turn to for guidance and love ...
No matter how old I really am.
