“Father’s Day Card,” Friend, June 2001, 31
Stopping for Daddy
If you should want a hug, I’ll stop and hug you.
If you should want some help, I’ll stop and help.
And if you see me doing something naughty,
Just tell me and I’ll stop without a yelp.
If you should need a song, I’ll stop and sing one.
If you should need a kiss, that’s what you’ll get.
I’ll gladly stop whatever I am doing
To help the greatest dad I’ve ever met.
If you should need a snack, I’ll stop and fix one.
A listening ear? I’ll stop and give you two.
You’re always there for me, and, dearest Daddy,
I plan on always being there for you.
So if you ever need my full attention,
Hold up this little sign, and there I’ll be.
I’ll always stop for you because I love you—
You taught me how by always loving me.
