Dad

 

From you, I learned how to be a man,

'stick to what you believe in, whenever you can'

'Never let someone push you around,'

Don't abandon the principals you've found

Never try to change to fit in with their

agenda. I know there were times where,

I fell short of the ideals you set,

times in the past, and times not here yet

I always tried my best to make you proud of me,

failing too often, but trying none-the-less to be

good like you taught, but I'll keep trying to uphold your values,

because I love you, always know that's true
