A Tribute To Dad

When kids my age were searching for Heroes, the likes of Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry, Hoppy and John Wayne I already had my idol. A hero is supposed to be Courageous and strong and favored By god. This description aptly fit father then as a youngster And today on this special day. And when he died some years ago A light was extinguished within My soul leaving a darkened void Where once my action hero, dad Was surely the best of them all.
