"My Daddy"

When I was 6 he taught me to shoot a gun
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
When I was 8 he gave me my first and only spanking
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
*****************************
When I was 10 he watched me dance ballet
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
When I was 14 he taught me how to drive
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
*****************************
When I was 16 he gave me his 1979 Mustang
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
When I was 17 and pregnant he showed love not disappointment
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
*****************************
When I got married he gave me away
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
When my first son was born, he was there
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
****************************
When both of my marriages failed, he stood by me
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
When I could finally stand on my own, he smiled and was happy for me
'Cause he was "My Daddy"
****************************
I am 35 years old now
He is still "My Daddy"
He slumps a little now and I am taller than him,
He is still "My Daddy"
*****************************
I love and respect him to this day
'Cause he is "My Daddy"
It is now my turn to take care of him
'Cause he is "My Daddy"

aww! i love my daddy too. crap, you're making me cry!
my daddy is awesome. i wanted to get him something special, or write him a poem. anything, but nothing came to mind. so i smiled and nodded and ate my ice cream in silence. i didnt complain i was tired, or wanted to go home, or that my feet hurt.
and when i passed out on the couch from exhastion, (see my blog, 'how about a helping of local heros?' post)
he didnt say anything. just woke me up and shooed me to my room.
i love my daddy. even if he is weird.

last year, for fathers day, i got him a five foot tall Led Zepplin poster that he cant hang because it is over 100 dollars to frame it, and our walls are to small.
we have a very tiny house.

you take care of your dad. always love him.
