Happy Daddy Day

"I am your parent; you are my child.
I am your quiet place; you are my wild.
"I am your calm face; you are my giggle.
I am your wait; you are my wiggle.

"...I am your carrot sticks; you are my licorice.
I am your dandelion; you are my first wish

"...I am your way home; you are my new path.
I am your dry towel; you are my wet bath.

"I am your dinner; you are my chocolate cake.
I am your bedtime; you are my wide awake.

"...I am your lullaby, you are my peekaboo.
I am your good-night kiss; you are my I love you."
From the book, "You Are My I Love You" by Maryann Cusimano
