Happy Dad Day, Dale

I always wanted 
to know more
about your relationship
with your dad. 

I never met my father,
and now I am trying 
to be a father myself,
so I want to always learn. 

I had a few role models
that molded me,
but I just want my kid
to never wonder if I love her. 

I want to be 
the shape of strength
in her eyes, 
but it starts with love. 

I like that one day 
my daughter will read this
and I will tell her everything
when she is ready.

I know your shaking your head,
but I am good at this,
and I wish you knew
more about me.
