~tribute to my father, a significant role model in my formative years, photo of him here with 3 of my sibblings~

He died as he lived Without making waves Without fanfare A simple man A humble man A loving husband And devoted father A man of principles Of integrity A dreamer A macgyver Determined To live with integrity And harmony At peace with both Living and dying Ready to meet His Maker Leaving with a promise on his lips To keep over us a watchful eye Published in my mini photo/anthology ~A SIMPLE MAN~ 2020 Submitted on June 28, 2020 for contest IN LOVING MEMORY sponsored by REGINA RIDDLE - RANKED 7TH and on June 22, 2019 for FUNERAL, EULOGY, OR MEMORIAL SERVICE POETRY CONTEST sponsored by TEAM POETRYSOUP

Line, your father sounds like someone I would like to have known. Beautiful tribute, touching in its simplicity and depth. "A MacGyver" paints quite a picture.

Beautiful eulogy, for your father I presume. "A macgyver" - I am going to have to look this up, unless it is a last name?

Thanks, Caren, for your much appreciated visit and comment. I'm sure you will love the word and adopt it. It was made popular by the TV series. It refers to someone who is creative, inventive and innovative.
