My Dad

by a child in Friends program

In my ocean you are a rowboat because you keep
me up when I am down.

In my grassy field you are a flower because you're
bright and you smell good.

In my stadium you are a hat because you protect
me from things that scare me.

In my dream home you are the front door because
I can keep things open to you.

In the book about my life you are the introduction
because I first came from you.

In my world of music you are the beat that keeps
my rhythm flowing.

In my galaxy you are a star because that one star
means you.
