YOU MAY HAVE THOUGHT WE DIDN’T SEE,
OR THAT WE HADN’T HEARD.
LIFE LESSONS THAT YOU TAUGHT TO US,
BUT WE GOT EVERY WORD.
PERHAPS YOU THOUGHT WE MISSED IT ALL,
AND THAT WE’D GROW APART.
BUT DAD, WE PICKED UP EVERYTHING,
ITS WRITTEN ON OUR HEART.
WITHOUT YOU, DAD, WE WOULDN’T BE
THE PEOPLE WE ARE TODAY;
YOU BUILT A STRONG FOUNDATION
NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY.
WE’VE GROWN UP WITH YOUR VALUES,
AND WE’RE VERY GLAD WE DID;
SO HERES TO YOU, DEAR FATHER,
FROM YOUR FOREVER GRATEFUL KIDS
“THERE ARE NO GOODBYES FOR US. WHEREVER YOU ARE YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS”
