My Hero

As I ponder the love
that I saw in his eyes,
A Godly love,
given without compromise ...
I recall many times
that he stood by my side,
And prodded me on
with great vigor and pride.


His voice ever confident,
firm and yet fair,
Always speaking with patience,
tenderness and care;
The power and might
of his hands was so sure,
I knew there was nothing
we couldn't endure.


It's true,
a few others provided insight,
Yet, he laid the foundation
that kept me upright;
He's the grandest of men
to have lived on this earth,
Although he's not royal
by stature or birth.


He's a man of great dignity,
honor and strength.
His merits are noble,
and of admirable length.
He's far greater
than all other men that I know,
He's my Dad, he's my mentor,
my friend and hero.
