My father is like no other…….
From crop dusting to chartered airlines,
And under the Golden Gate Bridge;
From Texas to Alaska, and the
Ruidoso, New Mexico ridge;
Sailing to Australia, American Samoa, and everywhere in between;
Through storms, hurricanes, and the biggest whale you’ve ever seen.
While some called him an adventurer or dare devil,
God gave him a long life, and I’m glad;
Because I got to hear his stories and love him a long time,
And gratefully I get to call him Dad.
