I do not lie, I do not deny that my Dad is the apple of my eye
The greatest man I have ever known to walk this earth, and do it alone
He'd beat down anyone for me just for giving me a harsh tone.
With his little grey hairs and sometimes funny mustache, tough is not something you'd first expect.
Tough to the bone, even tougher than nails, my dad is the greatest marine that's prevailed.
With a soft spot in his heart for his one and only daughter, over the years it began to make his Tummy grow larger.
Always "checking for poison in my food" he'd say. To little to comprehend he as taking my food away.
An old jolly man, but young at heart he always try's to help me find the light when I am in the dark.
Never meaning any wrong Intentionally , I'm sorry if it seems like I take advantage sometimes
He would fly to the moon and back to for me, he is more than just a dad, and he is not just family, he is my bestie.
I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me
I love you Daddy
