Thanks, Dad

For teaching me

How to work toward self worth,

How to create magic in your shop,

How to fish, and how to be patient,

How to tie knots,

Why running away was not a fun thing to do,

How to Make and Fly a kite,  

The wisdom found in family picnics,

How to make camp, make fire, find food, and sleep outdoors,

Imagine flying, and how to earn my way toward doing it.

Wings

Secret places I could go,

Things I could be …

You are always in my heart

And what I hope to be.
