our dad on his day,
Of whom we are a living will:
May your happiness fulfill
Your goodness, as is just and
Deeds are seeds upon the night
As wind and wonder have their way,
Delivering the destined light.
The things you taught us we will always know.
How could we not? The roots have sunk so deep:
All lessons of the heart that we will keep
No matter who we are & where we go.
Kids learn from what their
parents are, and so
our willing ear, the peaceful sea
On which we sail our thoughts, the quite tune
Underneath our laughter and our
Even though we’ve lived apart
We do not love you less
