Real dad, a poem for my dad. Some people may say you're not my real dad,but I know that isn't true. For you've been a real dad to me in all the things we've been through .
We've had our ups and downs sometimes it's hard to bend but you've always been there when I needed you and that's what matters in the end.
You've been patient kind and firm over the three years I have grown.i am eternally grateful for you for treating me as your own.
For though we're not tied by bloodlines the love and trust you're given me is a precious gift day after day that's what counts as a real dad to me.
I LOVE YOU DADDY REST IN PEACE.
