Years from now I’ll remember this day
The time I tried to write about you and didn’t know what to say
There are thousands of thoughts running through my mind
Finding the one that describes you completely is what’s hard to find
You suffer in silence to provide for me

Without you I can’t think of where I’d be
You’re there for me when I need you
Day in and day out
Your strength comforts me enough to remove my own doubts
If you weren’t around I wouldn’t know where to go

Because you’re my light down the dark and foggy road
You’re there when I need a hand to hold
So I squeeze tight and hope you never grow old
I follow as you lead the way
Even when I slip up you know exactly what to say

I sometimes wonder if there is anyone that could take your place
Would they even have a chance against the challenges you face?
You forgive me for things I can’t imagine,
And you try your hardest to keep me from going down the same roads you have been

Even with all you do
You only ask one thing of me,
And that’s just to be the best that I can be
My love for you is unconditional
It will always and forever be
As a father you’re the greatest for all the things you’ve done for me
