Happy Father's Day!

A Different Kind of Daddy
by J. Thayer

Some dads are only fathers.

A buddy on which to call,

To tie an occasional shoe

Or toss around a ball.

It takes a different kind of Daddy

To be a Dad to me.

You’re there for me in many ways,

Most dads could never be.

You help me see the world

In ways my body won’t allow.

To help me walk across the lawn,

You gladly take a bow.

You hold me up to touch a tree,

I help you cut the grass.

You gently position my little hands

As I drink from your big glass.

You always know to play peek-a-boo

While I’m waiting in my chair.

At bedtime you carefully arrange

My blanket and my bear.

What other dads take for granted,

You patiently wait to see.

You never push or expect too much

But always encourage me.

You’re a different kind of Daddy,

As you can clearly see.

You are my feet. You are my voice.

You mean the world to me!

Happy Father’s Day!
