A while back on Mother's Day I wrote a poem for my mom. I saw it yesterday and realized I hadn't done one for my dad yet. Perfect timing! Here it is.
This is a poem I wrote for you.
You can read it when you're happy and sad,
Cheerful and blue.
You're funny and helpful,
Loving and smart.
You are a dad who is close to my heart.
And this is a poem where I want to say,
Have a wonderful Father's Day!
I love you, Daddy! :D

A Poem For My Dad
I am an 18-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
