My Dad teaching Eric about God
You Raise Me Up dedicated to my Dad
Here is the poem I wrote for him.
Happy Fathers Day Daddy

On this special Fathers Day I’d like to say to you.
I remember all the fun times, they were never few
The mornings when we got up early, went to play some golf.
The early mornings of breakfast, sausage and biscuits you bought.
Asking you on Sundays what we were going to do that day.
You said we were going to relax, on the special day God made.
I remember playing the piano for you, at your special church.
How you showed me kindness by all the lives you touched.
Not a holiday went by that you did not make so special.
You even made up a few, just to make us feel your love.
Like the first day of school, when you told me I would be just fine.
And visiting my apartment, even though you knew I was alright.
Some things you did, because you love me so.
I would just like to tell you, of this I really know.
You showed me that to be a good person I should always be true.
Your love showed me the way to go in all I say and do.
I know sometimes I do not do all the things you taught me.
But never once have you said to me you did not do this well.
You let me make my own mistakes and learn a thing or two.
But you were always there to pick me up and to see things through.
So on this special day, I’d like to say to you
I love you my sweet Daddy and all that you say and do.
Just remember all the fun times, the special days we shared
And know that my special love for you will always be right here.
Thank you for being the father of my dreams
I would just like to say Happy Fathers Day to all you guys in Jland!
