For Connor, June, and Nova Clark

More than anything in the world, I want to be your shadow. Your shadow is one thing that'll never leave your side no matter the circumstances. It'll always be out front when you need someone to lead the way, and it'll always stand tall behind you when no-one else has your back. Your shadow will be walking right beside you when you feel like you are at the lowest bottom this world has to offer and it'll also be there when you feel like your on top of that same world. Your shadow will be the only one to listen when no-one else does and it'll always be happily quietly waiting close by when everyone wants to be present. Oh yes, your shadow is a constant. It will always be there whenever where ever you need it, through the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the lowest of the lows, and the highest of the highs. Your shadow will never let go of your hand. As a father, thats what I want to be to you. I want to be that constant that'll always pick you up when you fall or let you have your glory when you have succeeded. I want to be the hand that guides you through life but lets you decide where to turn. More than anything in this world I want to be your shadow.
