To My Dad on His Day
To my dad on his day,
Of whom I am a living will:
May your happiness fulfill
Your goodness, as is just and right.
Deeds are seeds upon the night
As wind and wonder have their way,
Delivering the destined light.
For guys my age this day is a bittersweet time, as both my dad and father in law have transitioned on.
For good or bad they both provided the strongest male influence I've ever had, and having them gone for good leaves a hole that cannot be filled.
As a father, though, I am very much harvesting the bounty I've sown with my two wonderful ladies who made me breakfast with presents and hugs. Feeling very loved and happy today.
Happy Fathers Day.
Precisely and succinctly put.
Sorry you're having a tough day. I guess one consolation is that you've got a nice step daughter (any kids of your own?) If I want something I usually just buy it myself. Most of the stuff people give me just sits in a closet and collects dust. Please enjoy the day with your step daughter (and kids?) And happy Fathers Day.
Sorry to hear that.
My wife rarely do gifts for those days, as she is not my mother nor I her father; but no matter, Shane is right.
Jango was a cool dad, but I wouldn't tell my dad we're like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader... unless he's hacked off your hand...
There are days when I think maybe they should just cancel the day and stop pretending society cares about dads for even one day of the year.
