Dad, you have protected me when I was a little boy, and you continue to do so now. My daddy was the best, I would tell my school friends, and he still is. He bought me things as a child and still does. None can hurt me, for you're here to protect me. That was your job, still is. I remember the little things, like resting my head on your chest to sleep, while listening to your heart beat. Your warm hugs, after I had hurt myself. Play fighting in the maisonette to big daddy on a Saturday afternoon.I can feel you with me where ever I go. You taught me about man things and the birds and the bees...thank you. You sooth the pain and encourage me to try again. You are my hero, my best friend. There's nobody like you dad, your full of love, and you have passed that on to me, so I can pass it on to my children. You are strong when I am weak, and when I'm weak you offer me strength. I always heed your wise advice. And when life fought against you, you always put me and my sister first. Looking after two children alone must have been hard, we are grateful, you succeeded.
I am part of you dad, and now I am a man. A man that you made possible. I'm so very Lucky that you are my dad, you are my angel. When your weak, I will be strong. And when you feel weak, I will offer you strength. And when you need a friend, I'll be by your side.
I love you Dad x
