You’re the father I always wished I’d had
You’re just like the man I wanted to call dad
You are filled with patience energy and love
You give our kids a reason to trust.
You are affectionate yet firm, strong yet understanding.
You represent everything I know our kids can be
When the kids grow up and become who they are
When we’ve raised a politician, a doctor, and a football star,
All your hard work will have paid off.
And all our sacrifices will be worth the cost.
So today, on this, our first fathers day
My husband I really must say
That you’re the greatest dad I know
And I am so excited to watch our kids grow
And maybe if we pray and if we’re lucky they’ll be
As perfect for their spouse as you are for me.
