I Love My Dad

"Any man can be a father. 
It takes someone special to be a dad." 
- Author Unknown

Hi everyone. Busy day today spending time with my husband and boys for Father's Day. We will be celebrating with my Dad next weekend and today, I share with you all a poem I wrote for him back when I was in high school. I wrote it out for him and framed it and he kept it in his office at work for many years.

A bit of background on my Dad: His name is Robert (Bob) Breakey. He is the best Dad in the world and I love him very, very, very much. That about says it!

My Dad giving me a kiss on my wedding day.

Love you Dad! xoxoxo


Four-Leaf Clover
(for Dad)

    In a vast sea of green
          toy soldiers march
to the beat of drums that
            Flat harmonies
      mismatched melodies
   carry them through blades
as they search for
           the rarest of treasure.
    They sing not in unison -
but count separately between the lines
     of their unfinished drafts:
     I hear their scrambled song
as I look behind at the
            field of wanderers
      and I can feel the
         invisible smile.

    I am the lucky one.
I know what they are searching for.

    I hold in my hand
   the four-leaf clover.

Happy Father's Day!!!
