Dad. I know with Cody leaving for the Navy next month,

You have been devoting your time with him trying

To get him ready, but I wanted you to know that,

Every day the whole year through,

I feel grateful you are my father.

Some fathers donít have time for their kids,

But for you Iím never a bother.

You always make an effort to listen and share,

It warms me to know how much you care,

And with that knowledge my worries are defeated

Dad, you are truly admired and adored,

And as your daughter, I hope that you know,

My love for you continues to grow.
