Happy fathers day Uncle Steve
 I was not yours but you raised me
 
It was a very confusing time
 and most of the time my heart was blind
 
As I grow older with children of my own
 I understand more of you and our home
 
It was a great responciblity and charity from you
 As you took me in, it was the right thing to do
 
Children of your own and a son passed on
 You worked day by day and made me your son
 
It was hard and I threw my fits
 but still you kept me and never called quits
 
I am sorry for the bad things I did and said
 I am sorry for the times I caused you to bow your head
 
The grouchys and the tired times the stress lines on your face
 I understand now very clearly as I run my own race
 
As dad we do the best we can 
to provide and protect with a steady hand
 
But things go wrong and we make mistakes
 but such is life those are just the breaks
 
We fall we fail 
We get back up and prevail
 
But good time are priceless and preciouse in heart
 They give us incentive to make a fresh start
 
Just as you did time and time again
 I push on as dad husband and freind
 
Thank you so much for being my dad
 The best Uncle to have and could have ever had
 
I hope that you are resting in peace and I hope to see you with our Lord in the east
