He is the one cherished by the child,
The beloved within a mother’s heart,
A man whom loves without set conditions.
Loyalties champion of human compassion,
Behold the strength holding his family together,
The man we call father.
Tolerance’s whispering voice of conscious choice,
Endurance’s rock soiled shoulder to cry upon, if
The troubling world becomes more than innocence
Kindred can bare alone.
Our leaning post that stands strong against the
Storms of reality, and shelters us beneath his
Devotional umbrella, amercing, merging the
Family within loves perfect embrace,
This man we call father.
In tenderness’s loving, he cradles the fragile,
Nourishing the delicate hearts that this man
Holds most near and dear unto him, by toils
Unconditional commitment, to waver is not
An option, but thrive, achieve and succeed is
The creed given by he, the man we call father.
Bold of heart, the living embodiment of faith,
Hopes everlasting light at the end of the
Black tunnel, yet he holds our hands tightly
Together always, until we all emerge safe
At the other side and bask in sunshine
Of loves flame, that he provides,
This man known simple as father.
Precious treasures these spirits belonging
To this man, father, grandfather, husband,
And friend, so much does he mean to us,
This gentle being, for whom we all cherish
And love, this man known as father.
One special day a year, we give him thanks,
Not with a tie, or shirt, or any other token
Will do for he, but a hug or kiss is more
Valuable to him, this man known as father.
His hair maybe turning grayer,
Wrinkles of worry are showing on his ageless face,
But to us he shall always remain the timeless,
Happy father’s day, to this man simply known
As father.

    Cheryl my dear friend, if that about Tom then your children were very lucky to have him, you have written this in such a way that it makes father's really shine out, my father was a good Dad but in those days most dad's were so busy working etc. to take time out for the kids, it is so different these days, take care ................Vera..x

    This is a wonderful tribute Cheri. Unfortunately for me, I thought of my dad as the punisher, I never saw that much love there. I guess that this was how many fathers were in those days. I enjoyed your words, my friend. I think this wrie is worth a seven....Peter

    An excellent tribute to the universal father. As a father myself I must thank you for these impressive words, Cherl. What better gift than a kiss or hug! All the best. // paul
