Father


A Father Through and True

A father is someone quiet yet strong
few words spoken gives more meaning to life's
otherwise wasted time gone
Wisdom quietly carried through year's of struggles,
somehow still whistles a song
A smile sometimes short, sometimes long
At times not enough laughter, not enough song,
yet quietly still carrying on
Too much to think of too much to do, not enough time
to carry it through
Doing his best to keep us warm, our bellies full
It takes many hands to lend to others a few
Many tiny feet to cover hands and heads too
Oh what a great job a father can do
So important, yet some have chosen to flee
For a father who stays, never has time for lazy days
And a good father is he
For that your children will cherish, the good and not so good
day's, Without that I wouldn't be me, you wouldn't be you
A father is a father through and true
May God forever bless you

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
