I am My Father's Heart


I am he who is thy father

I am my fathers heart

A wise man, with old knowledge

A teacher to those who will listen

A brother to many brothers

He who gives so unselfishly-



I am my fathers heart

A leader to those who shall follow

By many as the man with words

Strong you have stood -

Through the winter cold

Through the summer heat



I watched as you endured it all

I watched as loved ones betray

As you beat death a game of chess

Offered a smile when life frowned

Forever readiness for my ups and down-



I am my fathers heart

Because I am him who is great

He who is like a king to a village

When darkness surrounds me

You have always been that candle light



60 years now you have shed tears

60 years now you have sweat blood

60 years now you have loved many

60 years now yet you look 25 years



A poet can only wish for a father

But I can not wish like those

God blessed me with you daddy

I owe to your patience and love

60 years they say you have aged

But you are only as young as me

For I am my father heart.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
