Thank you for teaching me how to read and write,
for guiding me to distinguish between what is wrong and what is right.
For allowing me to dream and soar as a kite,
thank you for being my friend, mentor and light.
You spent years teaching me right from wrong,
yet you had the wisdom to know when to step
back and let me make my own mistakes.
You truly knew how to walk a fine line,
and look at me… I turned out fine.
Happy birthday to an amazing dad.
