A Fathers Life - Poem by Doug Morrow

From the Carpenters farm in the Mountains Blue, a toiling and restless young man sees another world, his mesa imbue.

He chases his dream and finds a sweet young lady along his path, a great life ahead with children abound, a picture perfect way at last.

A bolt of lightning from a sky so blue, Uncle Sam calls to serve his mighty land now.Climb a Ridge of Heartbreak and never take a bow.His only words spoken are 'love your Country always and take my medals now'.
His body of work lies in the Fabric Castle, never a day unturned,
missing family and friends try as you might, where did time go its bitter and bright.
In the Golden years and new dawn of day, speak kind words to all that will listen.He serves his Brothers in Arms from days gone past, all their medals now glisten.

Mr. Morrow you can finally take your due, all things unspoken have been heard, lifes long lessons now learned.The reflection pool filled I see a Fathers life at last, my Dad you will always be.
