Dedication for Dad

You would ask me what I think of you
And I'd respond with a simple 
"I love you"
But there are things in that "I love you" that I include 
I love how when I'd be tap dancing 
While everyone would be laughing
You'd be the one clapping
I love how when we're singing in the car
I'd always think
"What a great singer you are"
I love your addiction to coffee
Although, you really should try stopping
I love when a funny joke is said
You'd turn a deep shade of red
I love how to me
You're the funniest person in the world
I'll always be your little girl
And I love how you'll be home more
There's going to be popcorn galore!
Most of all, I love how you love God
Always teaching his way to us
To be upstanding and just
So you see
All these things
Are wrapped in that one "I love you"
And I intend it to stay
Forever that way
It's all true
"I love you" 

NOTE: This was written for my Dad's Retirement Party. He's going to be home a LOT more now and he so deserves it after 50 years of hard labor. :)

    Sorry for the late reply (all that "roughing it in the woods" and what not). This was very endearing, and I think it's great he'll be able to spend more time with you now - I know I would with my dad. Great work!

    Great dedication for your dad. He must be a great dad as is evidenced by his thoughtful and sweet daughter. I am sure he is very proud of you.

    Humanity needs to make more loving declarations like this to those they love. This was tremendous.
