I dedicate this poem to my dad. Happy Father's Day dad! I love you so much, and am so happy that you are finally home after a year in Iraq! Even though you've been back since January, it still seems like a miracle that you are here! God bless and amen!

What is love?

Asked the child to the bird.

What is love,

Sir,

Pray, tell, what is love?

Love is,

The bird answered,

Head cocked to one side,

Love is many things.

But most of all love may be the

Love of a father.

That is a love

A special kind of love

To be cherished.
