Hi there everyone!
Today I am sharing and dedicating a Father’s day poem printable to all
the special Dads we know.
A great big Happy Father’s day to all those special men in our lives.
Husbands, Grandfathers, Uncles, brothers, or even that special guy you call Uncle Joe, who really is not your Uncle but you grown to love him, look up to him and he treats ya like a Dad would.
I especially miss my dear, loving Grandfather on a special day like Father’s day.
Perhaps I just miss buying him old spice, or a pair of slippers. Those were always his simple wants, for every occasion.
Oh, and a bottle of Christian brothers brandy too! Of course, it was medicinal:)
He was the one constant solid, always there for me, and truly the best Man ever.
I can remember him packing a thermos full of milk , a pack of Oreo’s and taking me to the park to push me on the swings for hours.
I can remember him chasing down the Mister softee truck, always before supper just so I could get my soft serve. Of course, he would get a little something, something too and always make my grandmother a little perturbed.
I can remember my morning wake up calls just to be sure I was up and at em’ getting ready for work.
I can remember cold, snowy days in Buffalo and me getting in a warm car all brushed off and ready to go.
Even when I had my own apartment, he would drive over to do this for me.
I can remember him standing by the window on my late nights home and then running to his bed, as though I never knew he was waiting up for me.
I can remember him dressing me up when I was little in his big floppy hats, and singing one little, two little, three little Indians.
I can remember him busting out in a song in the middle of a restaurant and me never feeling too embarrassed.
I can remember the day he first laid eyes on Alex, our first born son and looking as though he had just become 30 years younger and so full of life again.
I can remember Alex jumping on his bed, and the very same song he would sing to me as a child, he would sing to him.
The I can remembers can be written in a book of 100 pages or more.
He walked me down the aisle on our wedding day with tears in his eyes. Proud, and sad that he was letting his little Debbiedoo’s go to another man.
I truly was a Grand daddy’s little girl.
Mike and Gramps became very close in his later years.
My husband took care of my Grandfather as though he was his own. They loved and respected one another, and had one major thing in common.
They both loved me and I knew when my Grandfather passed
I would have a piece of my grandfather not only in my heart and mind forever,
but in the Man that I married.
I dedicate this Father’s day Poem to them and all the fantastic Fathers in this world.
We need them in our lives, our kids need them… the World needs them.
Cherish the day and enjoy those special Men.
I know we will!
Our boys are blessed to have the Dad, Father, and strong role model they do.
The man I call Husband, now and forever.
Thanks for stopping over today!
