Father’s Day Card

Final card

Illustrated by Brad Teare

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.
