A Father Is


A father is someone who is always strong
He makes you feel better when everything has gone wrong
He'll make you laugh he'll make you cry
He wants you to marry the right kind of guy
A father will take you to watch the cricket match down the street
He'll carry you on his soulder to the next soccer meet
He'll buy you a bellyful on a hot summer's day
He'll bring KFC at night if mom says it's ok
A father is loveable he can be lots of fun
But don't take him for granted or soon all the fun will be done
He'll lay down the rules he will not make you act the fool
He is the ultimate in cool
A happy father's day to dads young and old
You're worth all of life's treasures much more than gold
If anyone should ask what makes you unique
Tell them that God gave you a special technique
To love your children and adore
The good and bad that come to the fore

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
