I hear my Dad whistling as he hurries home from work
The chipper tune floating through the house
Even though I know he has had a long day
He whistles through his daily workload 
Going to meetings, talking to clients, and writing bank statements
I hear my Dad whistling while doing the chores
Cooking dinner, washing the dishes, and helping with homework
I hear my Dad whistling while he puts children to bed
Telling pirate stories, reading princess books, and chasing the monsters away
I hear my Dad whistling while he goes to bed
Brushing his teeth, talking to my mom, and then getting into bed
I hear his tune slowly quiet and know that the day has come to an end
I put my head on my pillow and thank my stars that I have such a caring and hardworking Dad.
