I am my Father's son.
From you I inherited many things:
A sharp wit
And a sharper tongue
A desire to know more. . . about anything
And the desire to tell everyone who will stand still long enough all about it
A slow fuse
And a very hot temper when finally it is lit
The ability to be good at anything I choose to be good at
And the drive to choose everything I can think of
In this and more I am my father's son.
From you I learned many things:
The role of a man is to be strong
And to use that strength to help those who cannot help themselves
Learning is an end unto itself
And a great joy
I cannot win every fight
But I can make damn sure they other guy doesn't think he won either
That wrenches make for bad push-sticks
But they make for great stories , and sometimes that's more important
In this and more I am my father's son and proud to be so!
Happy Father's Day Dad. I love you.
