My Dad

It began on the day that I was born.
A friendship of love that would never be torn.
He looked in my eyes and somehow knew.
Our bond would stay strong a lifetime through.
He showed me how to become a man.
Thru hard work,good deeds, and all that I can.
He taught love, kindness, and respect for all others.
But no father could do this without our dear mothers
The love for his children will always be there.
As he showed us how much thru the years he did care.
And although I knew one day we would part.
I never realized how much it would break my heart!
I sit back and think of the days that we had.
And will always be Proud to call him "My Dad".
So, Now that I'm in my own later years.
Whenever I think of him......a sudden flow of tears.
And as I go on, I will always pray.
That all boys will be nourished and loved in this way.
Although my Dad always tried to be tough.
He said in the end, Another 100yrs.would never be enough
So, I wait for the day that I will move on.
And together again, I will be called his Son !
I Love you...Dad !
