Ode to My Father

As I sit here and reminisce
Just thinking of times we spent together
I don't have to search very hard
There are so many memories to cherish forever

I looked up to the man you were
Full of strength, drive,and ambition
You were loved and respected by many
A man blessed with incredible intuition

You were a leader by example
Through achievement and accolades you set the bar
Your kindness, love, and caring
Made you the most honorable man I knew by far

There are so many things that make you great
The list goes on without end
But the few that define your soul
Were your dying devotion as a father, husband, and friend

I always knew where you stood
You taught me to stand tall and be strong
But the greatest lesson learned of all
Love the Lord and nothing can be wrong

I will carry your torch close to my heart
Bestowed the privilege of your legacy
Knowing that you are smiling down from heaven
I will always live to honor your memory
