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.
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.
