I Have A Joseph, Too

Written by: Ellen Fahey

Dear Jesus, did you know, 
I have a Joseph, too?
Mine, like yours, is kind and gentle,
Loyal, loving, and true.

Like your Joseph, God sent him
To guard and protect our family,
And through the years he's done just that,
He's really very special to me.

Your Joseph, we've known as 'Saint'
by those who love the Lord.
He answered God's call with faith like steel,
Just as it was implored.

My Joseph, too, has led a good life,
With God at his center each day.
Through happy times and painful moments,
Mine knew you would lead the way.

Your Joseph, we call your 'foster father',
The best 'Pop' you could have had.
As for mine, he's been such a gift,
And I just call him 'Dad'.
