Little Eyes Upon You

There are little eyes upon you
and they’re watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.

There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And a little boy who’s dreaming
of the day he’ll be like you.

You’re the little fellow’s idol,
you’re the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise.

He believes in you devoutly,
holds all you say and do;
He will say and do, in your way
when he’s grown up just like you.

There’s a wide-eyed little fellow
who believes you’re always right;
and his eyes are always opened,
and he watches day and night.

You are setting an example
every day in all you do;
For the little boy who’s waiting
to grow up to be like you.

When My Father Talks

Sometimes when we go out for walks,

I listen while my father talks.

The thing he talks of most of all,

Is how it was when he was small.

And he went walking with his dad,

And conversations that they had.

About his father and the talks,

They had when they went out for walks.

Images of a Father

4 Years of Age ~ My daddy can do anything!

5 Years of Age ~ My daddy knows a whole lot.

6 Years of Age ~ My dad is smarter than your dad.

8 Years of Age ~ My dad doesn’t exactly know everything.

10 Years of Age ~ In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.

12 Years of Age ~ Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn’t know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.

14 Years of Age ~ Don’t pay any attention to my Dad. He is old fashioned.

21 Years of Age ~ Him, he’s hopelessly out of date.

25 Years of Age ~ Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around for so long.

30 Years of Age ~ Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he’s had a lot of experience.

35 Years of Age ~ I’m not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.

40 Years of Age ~ I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.

50 Years of Age ~ I’d give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

Candy for Dad’s Day

Dear (Sugar) Daddy, 

You are the best dad in the whole Milky Way, even though you are from Mars and I’m from Venus. You Skor high points as a dad….don’t Snicker(s). 

When you were born there was a Symphony in heaven! Your Hot Tamale(s), Mom, still thinks you are a Big Hunk. I wish I could take you on a shopping Spree on 5th Avenue in New York (Peppermint Patty), but they don’t have Builders Square there because they’re Nerds. 

Love you Mounds, 

Your Nut (Roll)
