To My Dads on Father's Day
By William Byrd. Sequenced by John Sankey.
|To my dads on Father's Day,|
On both of whom we both depend:
My daughter reinvents my themes.
Years pass, and well-wrought love remains.
Dads are saviors, straight or gay,
Always where our oceans end,
Deliverers of desperate dreams,
Solid land where sunshine reigns.
