    Happy Birthday Dad in Heaven!

    Dad’s Place

    There’s a special kind of feeling
    when I think about you, Dad.

    It’s a pleasure to remember
    all the happy times we’ve had.

    There’s a special kind of caring
    That is meant for you alone

    There’s a place somewhere
    Within my heart
    That only you can own.

    Love always and forever!
