Dads come in all shapes and sizes.
Some sleep in, some early risers,
Fishermen, oft in disguises,
Generous or sometimes misers.
Fathers can be gentle too,
The strong and silent things they do,
Or loud and noisy, one or two,
But loving, honest, brave and true.
Not all men become good dads,
Too much time out with the lads!
Or lost inside their new ipads,
They chase unhealthy drinking fads.
A real dad is hard to find,
Strong and tough, but soft and kind,
Confident within his mind,
One who’s washed, and cleaned, and ironed.
Dads can fail in many ways,
And sometimes it’s not he who pays,
But on these special family days
Dads deserve their share of praise.
