Dear Dad

Updated: Oct 17, 2019

Staying up late with you to watch football I will never regret,

because those are the moments I won't forget.

You provided me with a love for sports,

and I proved it to you on the courts.

In basketball you beat me with a hook shot,

but I found that farther away from the hoop was my hot spot.

Even though I never got the crown,

I got the last laugh when you walked out with earrings on into town.

Thanks for never letting me win,

for you have created a competitor within.

Except I always beat you in ping pong,

your paddle says sore loser, and if you disagree, we'll all remind you that you're wrong.

Although we don't always see eye to eye,

I know that you will always be by my side.

From you I have gained thick skin,

I like to hide my tears with a grin.

Somedays you may be the butt of our joke,

but when I say I love you I never misspoke.

Even though I won't be around on your birthday or Father's Day,

your gift is on it's way.

Love you Dad.



P.S.

Thanks for all that you do,

I'm sure someday Ravenwood will appreciate you too.

I will drive by slow,

be ready to tuck and roll.
