In these feet you will find traces of both you and I, 
 Footprints of eternal souls given to us in time.

With every step you guide them and watch them as they grow,
You are their father, their protector, and their hero.

They will dance on top of your shoes and follow your lead
a path of selfless sacrifice is one they will see.
Eventually they will walk miles out on their own
But for now, they run to you when you come home.
As the days go by and work begins to slowly pile
Just remember these little feet make it all worthwhile.

Happy Father's Day!
