My Dad

I have always been so glad
for in my life I have had
A Godly man, I call dad

At times you had to be stern
In order for me to learn
The discipline you gave,my actions did earn

The things you would strive to teach me
the reasons for which I now can see
Were all to mold and shape me
Into the person God created me to be

Sometimes your patience had seen enough
Along the way things would get rough
More times than not, you had to get tough
Looking back now I am able to see
It truly did hurt you worse than it did me

It was your love, firm hand and example I must say
That has made me into the person I am today

Steadfast, unwavering, strong, faithful, honorable and true
These are words used to describe you

Thankful that I had
The most wonderful dad
