“For My Dad,” Friend, June 2005, 37
For My Dad
Each morning when I hear your voice,
My face is full of smiles.
For you are just the greatest man
There is for miles and miles!
You know that I look up to you,
For I am very small.
I love the games you play with me,
We always have a ball.
At night you tuck me into bed
And make me feel so loved.
It’s neat that I was sent to you
From Father up above.
I made this special gift for you
So you would look so smart.
It may not be of shining silk,
But it’s a work of art!
So wear this tie on Father’s Day,
And you will make me glad.
I want to say I love you,
’Cause you’re the greatest dad!
Instructions: Color the tie and sign your name. Carefully remove this page from the magazine and mount it on heavy paper. Cut out the tie and punch a hole near the top where indicated. Then give it to your dad with a big hug.
