My Home In the Stars

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For they hold the stories,

my grandma told me,

the walks on the beach,

with the family,

and the moment,

when my heart,

first took flight.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For when I lose sight,

of where I am,

they comfort me,

like they comforted my ancestors,

eons before I was born,

guiding them with light.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night…

 

For their infinite beauty,

keeps me grounded,

no matter how high I fly,

reminding me who I am,

and where I come from,

as I sail across the sky.

 

I will carry my home with me,

in the stars I see every night.

Happy Father’s Day!

Dear Dad,

 

I am glad,

there is a special day,

where I get to tell you,

how much I love you,

and how much you mean,

to me.

 

To tell you,

despite all the disagreements,

we may have,

you are the best dad ever,

and will always be.

 

From my first flying kisses,

to the piggy back rides,

You were always there,

by my side,

always guiding me.

 

You showed me,

how to stand up to life,

no matter how tough,

it may be,

to rise after each fall,

to be a strength,

to the family.

 

You showed me,

to follow dreams,

with my eyes wide open,

and to try,

try, try, again,

till I succeed.

 

You were the first,

to read me poetry,

to tell me I am free,

to be,

who I want to be.

 

So Dad,

thank you for everything,

Thank you for being the best dad,

that can ever be!


Happy Father’s Day!
