To my Dad

Itís been a long time since I had something to say

So Iíll try making this one a kind of special day

I first want to thank you for carrying the ball

For being our mentor so strong and so tall

You gave me your courage, your moral position

Your special insight into the human condition

I have lived by the principles you put in my head

Iíll carry your honor and virtue till Iím probably dead

†Iím now a man like you with kids of my own

And passed on your values till they were all grown

†I know that you told me real men donít cry

But you and I know, Dad, that was a lie

I saw you under stress that would make any man cry

Then watched your face and saw your eyes were not dry

†So thank you for molding me from a small lad

†In to someone like you, my hero, my Dad.

Author's Notes:
I sent this poem to my Dad for Fathers day last year. His only comment was " I don't think I can live up to your words.They were beautiful"
