Greatest Gift

I know that sometimes people say your not my dad.
But it doesn't hurt me
To me you are, and thats what counts.
Having you as my father,
Is the greatest gift of all.
You've been a dad to me in all the things
we've been through.
You've always been there when I needed you.
You've been patient, kind and firm over the years
as I've grown.
And I'm eternally gratefull to you, because you've
treated me as your own.
For though we're not tied by bloodlines,
But by heart we are,
The love and trust you've given me is the most precious
gift of all.....
And I'm so gratefull to have you in my heart.

Nice poem to your dad, but more heart than poetry, nice though.
