an ode to my dad


a man of greatness
made only of kindness
my only super hero
never let me in sorrow

a man with hair half white
with a heart as bright
as bright as a sun
who is gods only son

he is as soft as cream
who comes for when i scream
he suffers so much -for
me to have a great much

his kind hands kept me warm
his loving smile made no harm
i will always bend
to the kindness he lends

he kept his dreams aside
for me to have a great side
a man as beautiful as cherry blossom
a man who is awesome

a man as sweet as honey
i will always love my father MANI.! ! ! !
