You know son, the greatest joy of being your dad is that i know that you love me dearly, and everytime when these three words come out from you,it just warms me up, and i know you really mean it.
You have thought me to be a dad, and you even have thought me to be a nicer man, you challenged me to look at my flaws and my wrongs, you dared to tell me what i did wrong in your childish ways, and i appreciate it.
Well there were times you made me real mad, but then again there were times i made you as mad too, so i guess we are squared off for this , i love arguing with you for i know i want you learn to make your stand. You dont have to agree with me everything that i say, but you must agree with me that everything i say is out of my love for you.
One day son, you are going to be a handsome guy, but remember you must be the handsome guy with a good heart, and not a cheating heart, and remember papa is always here for you, there is no question there's too hard for you to ask me, and there's no answer there's too difficult for me to tell you.
Now son, this is my time to shout out to you and holler loud and clear " I love you, son" and "happy birthday to you"
When you were small, i cuddled you
When you're a little older, i treasured you
When you're all grown up, i appreciate you.
P/S, you made me sad, you made me mad, but most of all you made me glad, i love you son
