not a father but a dad
Related by blood You didnt have to be There at the birth You are there now To the softball games Volleyball and school plays You are there when That boy broke my heart You played catch with me And helped me get better Not only in softball But as a person too You carried me to bed When I fell asleep on the couch Just because you Are not my father Doesnt mean you're Not my dad A dad is there When needed and not Any boy can be a father It takes a true man To be a great dad
This is a dedication to the man that has been there for me since I was 8 when my real father abandoned me. When people ask me " Who is your dad" I tell them Mark. I don't think twice when people say we look alike or act the same. When I am at the doctors I catch myself answering the questions wrong because I don't think of him as anything less than my dad.
I love you dad
