Real Dad

Some people would say you’re not our real Dad

but we know this isn’t true

for you were a real Dad to us

in all the things we went through


We had our ups and downs

sometimes it’s hard to bend

but you were always there when we needed you

and that’s what matters in the end


You were patient, kind and firm

over the years as we’ve grown

and we are eternally grateful to you

because you treated us as your own


For though we weren’t tied by bloodlines

the love and trust you’ve given us

is a precious gift, day after day

that’s all that counts as a REAL Dad to us
