Some much hard work,
A lot of blood and sweat
May have fallen from your life's perk
So much you have done to me
Understanding when my times are wet
Doing your best so that only good I can see
Every breath, every tear, every drop of blood
Every drop of sweat, everyone you met
Niftily will have a result; I'll win against the flood

Dedicated to my Dearest Dad and all Dads in the world...

I have no words to say about this because the poem and the picture speaks for itself...Except for one thing, Dad, I love you so much...

Nice tributes to papas out there, gal. A dad's princess is his daughter.

@Afra, this is a wonderful piece. I think the letters in bold are an acronym or your dad's name.
