Happy birthday poem


Happy birthday to my great and patient father!

You could have just given up on me and said: “why bother”.

I hope I am as patient and wise with Zach as you were with me.

I hope he sees how much I’ve learned, even though most of it just hit me.

Thank you for dragging me to church and for Ricardo’s after.

Thank you for grounding me, and for all of the laughter.

I could not have asked for a better role model than you.

I bet you wish I realized this back when I was 22!

Anyway, thanks for being such a great dad!

I promise to never again make you mad……hopefully!


Your son,
