Happy Father's Day
Father our creator and friend,
Companion to the very end.
Mentoring our lives with friendship and happiness,
Guiding us to an excellence in education.
Clothing and housing us thru the years,
Days and nights without fear.
Father who listens to our stories,
Patient and caring.
Teaching us a love of art and music,
Modelling parenting well.
Sports became an excellent pastime ,
Swimming our favorite hobby.
The world is a better place with fathers,
The strength and anchor among the storms.
I am thankful to God,
The blessing of my father.
