Happy Fathers Day

To My Love

Lots of tears were shed
Only several years ago.
A helpless and lonely girl
Was tired of dating schmoes.

With children of her own
And no paticular place to go.
she ventured into the world
Down a long and windy road.

She was Looking for the love of her life
For someone to call her, his wife.
She was about to give up hope
And then, she spotted her dream boat.

You made quite the grand enterance
Charging in on your white horse.
You told me to relax,
That we were steady on course.

We dined on pancakes
Late one night.
Later you made up for it
Pursuing me with all your might.

Hiking and skiing,
Hot tubs and biking.
Frequent Evening runs
proved to be a lot of fun.

Two long days in a car
Weren't very hard with you.
Watched hockey in a bar.
Love birds with no curfew.

I took you to my home town,
To my old stomping grounds.
We traveled to the white house,
Where I thought for sure you'd propose
that I become your spouse.

Ready for an adventure
We moved to SoCal.
So unsure of the future
And pregnant with a gal.

We headed to the court house
And said our I do's.
I wanted to spend my life
Right next to you.

We welcomed a little girl
What a beautiful day.
We found out soon after
Another was on her way.

Our days of just us
uickly came and went
Now we have a full bus
And all our money spent.

Tickle fights and soccer games
Recitals and sippy cups.
Our lives have quickly changed
And we're covered in spit up.

I'm so proud to call you my husband
And forever my bestfriend.
To raise four children with you
And endure to the end.

You couldn't be a better father
Our family is complete.
On this day dedicated to you
Happy Fathers Day.
