"Play catch with me, Dad!"
I hope you don't forget
about the small kid at home
with the baseball and the mitt.

I know that you've been busy
with important things all day,
but it makes me feel so special
when you take some time to play.

Learning how to throw and catch
don't mean that much to me.
It's just being with you
that makes us family.

So remember when you are tired at night
from the day that you just had,
don't forget I love you and
"Play catch with me, Dad."

-- Tom Krause
