A father is a cushion to lay my head,
when things seem dark and dreary;
A father carries me up to bed,
when I’ve grown very weary.
A father reads me a bedtime story,
and hugs me when I’m scared;
a father is one who is by my side,
and who always seems to care.
He is there to close my window,
and to sing an old Irish tune;
he is there to let me know,
that I am his stars and moon.
A father lives, a father gives,
me all the love he possibly can;
he is silly, he is my joy
he is my favorite man.
A father is there to life me up
each time I inevitably fall;
A father rushes into the room,
each time his name I call.
A father is the one I love,
a father is my best friend;
he will always be in my heart,
on that he can depend.
So thank you sweet darling Dad,
for all you’ve done for me;
my love for you is greater than,
all the stars in the sky you see.
