D-ances with daughters
A-s toddlers on tip toes and later in merry at weddings a little sadden
D-efender of virtue and hearts so easily broken
D-etermine to ensure your little girl successes no matter the cost
Y-es man in most cases to daddy little princesses.
Dearest held me when I was just a babe, with hands so big and worn.
Always taking responsibility from the day that I was born.
Difficult was the work to give us food and a roof above our heads.
Daddy gave us coats and shoes and toys and a nice warm comfy bed ...
You gave us one thing that was the most, each day without complaint.
Serving your love and understanding on a never ending plate.
Girls think their dads are the best, but I for sure can say,
I know you are the best. Number one in my heart you will stay.
Rendering always the dearest to me; even when we are apart.
Love you dad for being you and giving me a start.
Product of a collaboration of Robert Pettit and Sally Smith
I did not want to say goodbye,
To you my friend, my special guy,
You always made me get things done,
At the same time we had fun.
Missing you, I feel such pain,
The way you left was such a shame,
You left so quick, I don’t know why,
I just know it made me cry.
I always tried to do my best,
Although sometimes I was a pest,
You taught me manners and virtue,
I became a soldier because of you.
You made me what I am today,
I love you man in every way,
I know that I was sometimes bad,
I miss you big guy, you’re my Dad.
Once God was in crafting mood,
He had to gift something precious to the world.
And the Imagination Bee had gone far to play.
The God was blank.
So he took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need.
Then the God combined these qualities.
And there was nothing more to add.
He looked at it,
And knew His masterpiece was complete.
He called it ... Dad,
And sent it on Earth.
Dancing With Wolf
Dreamily dancing, dancing, dancing
All enthusiastically, romancing, romancing
Night-time, daytime, anytime, even dreaming
Causing illustrious animal magnetism
Initially anytime dancing through the day and night in anticapation
Not dancing without showing animal resolution
Giving into dancing, dancing, dancing
Without the wolves through-out the day and night with no hesitation
In the afternoon with the wolves in mid-Montana
The wolves near Great Falls, Montana; sure do dance enthusiastically with Grandpa
Hello Great Falls, for Tess is coming home to visit, visit, visit
Welcome, Great Falls, Grandpa, I really do miss dancing with wolves that sit
Openly, I’ll be happier than thou, may even be overly-ostentatious
Lovingly, lusciously saying and watching gloriously with much over-zealous,
Familiarity of how my fore-fathers enthusiastically knew how to play and dreamily ended dancing with wolves.

There is a man,
his name is Shane.
he is my father.
and for that i am eternally grateful.
he gave me life
he wasn't always there
in the beginning of my life.
but now i am here living with him
and i couldn't be happier.
he gives me strength
and keeps me safe.
there is a man his name is Shane
and i am proud to call him dad.
