A Father's Heart


A father's heart
is very strong
Can take life's hits
weather any storm

It takes the hurt
shares the pain
Wants only love
has nothing to gain

It swells with pride
at children's deeds
Works blindly on
to furnish every need

A father's heart
can also grow hard
A wrong not forgiven
stays with it so long

It takes a beating
yet continues on
Ready to give and get
forever long

A father's heart
is there waiting to receive
Its families love
That's all it needs

    As an eternal Daddy's Little Girl , your poem reminded me that I would give anything to be able to dance once again with him...Happily we had nothing left undone between us when he passed....I now carry a portrait of him in my heart, and try to honor him with every breath.... Your write is an urgent declaration to truly make time count. PEACE (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
