Ode to Dads

June 26, 2013
By Tom Baideme - June 2013 , Westfield Republican / Mayville Sentinel News

Here's to all the dads out there

Those who've passed and those still here

To celebrate again for some

Others just the first of many to come

Some newbies with their heirs on hold

Awaiting their chance to celebrate

With his infant in his arm

Protecting them from major harm

Then to watch them growing up

First days of school, first nightly dance

Summer times with Little League

Winter time with snow and sleds

Teach them how to catch and throw

Guiding them to ride a bike

Holding them to reassure

That scraped knee will heal all right

When you're on in age they graduate

And then off to parts unknown

Some to college, some OJT

Hopefully no one off to war

So this prayer's for all of you

Some old hats and some still new

That you enjoy this day with kids and kin

Till this day of celebration comes around again
