Father's Day Poem from Because I Tried It review & giveaway

I know Father's Day is more than a month away, but it is never too early to start planning, right? Because I Tried It has asked bloggers to review their Father's Day Poems in preparation for the wonderful Day of Dad. This is my husband's second father's day and I was thinking of doing something with this poem for him, but it is really geared more towards an older child rather than me making something that would be "from Drake." However, I can still use it for my own father. My dad has always enjoyed my own poetry, so this could be an option. If I remember correctly, Because I Tried It is going to have a couple of poems available. You might want to check out their site closer to the middle of May to see what other options they have if this one does not suit your needs. It's a lovely poem, but just might not fit your circumstances. Read the first two stanzas below and decide for yourself. You can also see a copy of it in the picture below, but you may find it fairly hard to really see. I don't feel that I should give you the entire poem because that won't prompt you to go buy it. I want to encourage the support of this company instead of undermining their work. You can also check out some of their other Personalized Gifts for Anyone, Anytime.

I Love You Dad

What can you say to someone who has always been
One of the most essential parts of your world,
Someone who took you by the hand when you were little
and helped to show the way?

What do you say to someone who stood by to help you grow
Providing love, strength and support
So you could become the person you are today?
