Who worked so hard and saved so long
For what we have today?
And anytime will sacrifice 
His chance to rest or play?

Who always sees his children have
The things he did without?
And gives so much, unselfishly,
For that's what love's about.

Who thinks and plans and struggles, too,
As nobly as he can
To set a good example, and
Be a respected man?

Who seeks no honors, no rewards
For all that he has done?
Except to raise a family,
The very finest one.

Though we cannot evaluate
Our dad, his love, his worth,
To us he'll always be "just Dad",
The greatest guy on earth.
