He is the one who works his whole life,
He works when he tells you not to worry
takes on the worries himself instead
Let’s you mope around in bed
Works out what to do
You feel lighter
When he hands the solution to you
He works when mum is overwhelmed
He works when he is working out what to do for himself
He works when things don’t work out for you
He works when the family is blue
He goes out at night to get some fresh milk from Tesco
(before we had Just Eat of course!)
Some Coke and kebab rolls
We no longer feel morose!
Thank you, you’re the best
You’re kinder than the rest!
He goes where others are afraid to go
He leads the way when others say no
He gives hope to you when you are lost
He gives companionship to your mum,
Yes, he is the family’s boss!
He is unique
He helps you when you are sad
Who could this be?
Yes he’s your dad!
Happy Father’s Day!
