Dads

It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.

- Anne Sexton

 

 

 

A dad is.. someone who
 wants to catch you before you fall 
but instead picks you up,
 brushes you off,
 and lets you try again.

A dad is... someone who 
wants to keep you from making mistakes 
but instead lets you find your own way,
 even though his heart breaks in silence 
when you get hurt.

A dad is... someone who 
holds you when you cry,
 scolds you when you break the rules,
 shines with pride when you succeed,
 and has faith in you even when you fail.
