Daddy

Daddy you taught me how to love,

you taught me how to drive,

you helped me with math homework,

and you tried to help me make the right decisions,

and stood next to me when I didn't,



You teased me about a lot of things,

and you threw food at me, =D

you showed me star wars,

and you helped me with my Halloween costumes,

You made me laugh, even when i wanted to cry,

and you said " I love you" even when we were fighting,

you stood up for me when I couldn't,

and yelled at me when i did wrong,



Ya, we fought, but you still loved me,

I have been carrying Hazel around,

not because I'm sad,

but because she makes me smile,



If I had my life to do over,

I'd have chosen you to be my dad once more,

Even if it meant losing you again,

It's worth all the tears in the world
