If I Went Shopping For a Dad

posted on June 15, 2018

[97 words]

If I went shopping for a dad,
Here is what I’d buy:
One who would always stop
To answer a little child’s “Why?”

One who would always speak kindly
To a little girl or boy.
One who would give to others
A bit of sunshine and joy.

I’d pick a dad that followed
The Bible’s Golden Rule,
And one who went regularly
To church and Sunday school.

I’d buy the very finest dad
To place on our family tree,
And then I’d try to live like him
So he would be proud of me.
