Fathers are wonderful people. We do not sing their praises as often as we should... For, somehow, Father seems to be the man who pays the bills, While Mother binds up little hurts And nurses all our ills...
Father struggles daily To live up to "his image" As protector of the family and perhaps that is the reason We sometimes get the notion, That Fathers are not subject To the thing we call emotion. But if you look inside Dad's heart, Where no one else can see You'll find he's sentimental and as "soft" as he can be...
But he's so busy every day in the grueling race of life, He leaves the sentimental stuff to his partner and his wife...

So, I just want to avoid all these scenarios. But Fathers are just wonderful In a million different ways, And they merit loving compliments and accolades of praise.
For the only reason Dad aspires to fortune and success is to make the family proud of him
and to bring them happiness.
Some Quotes on Dad:
"The most important thing a dad can do for his children is to love their mother."
"Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad."
"My Dad didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it."
"My dad gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."
Moral of the Story: No Morals as such. I just want to Thank my Dad ... for listening and caring, for giving and sharing, especially, for just being my dad!
