Thankful For A Father Like You

Growing up I never gave you the respect you deserved
I never gave you all the credit you earned
You always treated me as your own
But hell was all you were ever given in return

I could tell you thank you each day for the rest of my life
And it wouldn't be enough to take back all the hate I said with each fight
It took many years for me to understand the truth
Being a father to me was all you have tried to do
Now I'm thankful to have a father like you

I don't know how you kept on
Many years of hearing those constant words
'Your'e not my dad, leave me alone'
You never showed how much they hurt
Each time they would come you never gave up
You just kept showing me a fathers love

You taught me so many things
Although most of it I learned the hard way
Though I'm still thankful for those lessons I learned everyday
 
Now that I'm older and understand
I respect you more than any man
Because it takes a special person
To raise a child and be called dad

I could tell you thank you each day for the rest of my life
And it wouldn't be enough to take back all the hate I said with each fight
It took many years for me to understand the truth
Being a father to me was all you have tried to do
Now I'm thankful to have a father like you

Twenty two years later and your love is still the same

Thank you for being there each day
And for all the things you do
I will always be thankful for a father like you
