A father and a dad aren’t the same
one can be a dad and not a father
or one may be a father and no longer hassle
to earn via love the greater endearing name

a few locate fatherhood a bit too tame
leaving all the information to the mom
or dumping the candy burden on any other
guy with just a passing twinge of shame

you have got been our dad such a lot of years
which you’ve turn out to be the panorama this is home
the mountain that we look to from afar
irrespective of in which we go we’re not on my own
for you stay inside to still our fears
and be the word that tells us who we are
