#TBT, A Dad

Back in the day. Elissa, Megan, Kelliann

A dad is someone who

Wants to catch you before you fall

But instead picks you up,

Brushes you off,

And lets you try again.


Megan, Kelliann, ELissa


A dad is someone who

Wants to keep you from making mistakes

But instead lets you find your own way,

Even though his heart breaks in silence

When you get hurt.


A dad is someone who

Holds you when you cry,

Scolds you when you break the rules,

Shines with pride when you succeed,

And has faith in you even when you fail . . .
