Friendship With Dad

Not many people can say
they have a true friend
Someone that stands by your side
and shows devotion with no end
The person that encourages you
to reach for your dreams and goals
The one that understands the hardships
hidden deep within your soul
That person that stays up at night
When you need a listening ear
The only person in the world
that knows your deepest fear
That shoulder that you cry on
When life doesn't go according to plan
They help you dust yourself off
and muscle the strength to stand
That person you can count on
When times are good and bad
Someone you're blessed with...
I call mine Dad!
