Dear Dad

When all’s been said and memories roll,
When the world stands on its toes,
To render judgement on your roles,
To mark your flaws and cast their stones,

Remember my words
and rest assured,
You are so much more
than you’ve been told…

You’re my knight in shining armor,
All the safety I’ve ever known,
Forever present in my corner,
That I’ve never truly been alone…

You are the sum of all my affection,
The sun that lights up my sky…
My love for you will be your salvation,
The stars that rage against your night…

Of all the things I’ve been grateful for,
You’re what I hold closest to my heart,
For as surely as I know that the sun is a star,
I know that you love me with all that you are…
