Happy 50th dad!


My amazing dad surfing into fifty,

Celebrating right, with a bottle of whiskey,

Outdoorsy and confident, with a shy casing,

I hope you get everything you've been chasing,

Stop worrying about the faces behind the curtains,

And the F.B.I isn't watching you, that's for certain, 

Hiking, kayaking and walking the dog,

Going to the nude beach, in the early morning fog,

From catching spiders on your chest,

To making furniture at mums request,

You raised me and I can't thank you enough,

Especially how you loved me when it was tough,

Just one hug and I know it'll be okay,

My dad, my safe spot, so whats left to say?,

Chill out and have a few beers,

I love you so much! Here's my cheers!

      you are very lucky to have such a connection with your dad
      but these words, exemplify
      how much you deserve that luck
      a loving child, is testimony
      to a loving parent's, toil
      of sleepless nights, sweat and tears...
      (congrats to both you and your dad
      'many happy returns!')
      thanks for sharing
