Father’s Day 2014

wow. 11 years of father’s days.
have passed without you here.
but know dear dad the words you taught,
Still echo in my ear.

I think of all your loving ways,
your imperfections too.
But mainly how you never gave up
And you always followed through.

You always had a zest for life
With all it’s hills and valleys
And when the going started getting rough
Your strength always rallied.

So just know on this Father’s Day
Your philosophies still guide me.
“love what you do, and it’s never work,
your passion sets you free.”

So thank you dad for everything,
for the woman you helped me be.
One tiny thing I wish …
