My Good ole Dad

As you guys ought to know, today is Father's Day. So far it's been a really great day. My dad really loved the cards that my siblings and I wrote for him. That's great, because this year I was particularly proud of the poem I wrote for the inside note. I don't think he'll mind if I post it here, for you to judge. I combined the words of this poem and this other poem I found online for inspiration, but I turned it into totally my own thing.

My father Benny (that's his name) is the best.
He is better than all the rest,
Funny and kind,
With a very sharp mind.
I love him very dearly.
I say so quite sincerely,
I do.
Benny, I love you,
Like the sky and oceans are
I can never be blue,
So long as I have you.
^,^ My good ole dad. ^,^
Full of laughter and smiles,
Happiness and piles
Of good times.
For listening and caring,
For loving and sharing,
I thank god every day
That you're mine.
My good ole dad.
BTW, the parentheses are not part of the poem.

The parentheses could be part of the poem if you wanted them to be. I read them as part of the poem and thought they added a different aspect--like you're talking to someone who doesn't know him, who maybe doesn't even know you, but you're so happy you have your dad that you just can't help but say it.
