James Tyler


Father's Day


Who is my father?
He’s a star in my life.
He keeps my in line,
And keeps me out of strife.

Who is my father?
He’s one hell of a stud.
He’s a chef of the BBQ,
And I’m one of his buds.

Who is my father?
He’s the all-star player,
He’s El Capitano,
And monster-under-the-bed slayer

Who is my father?
He tucks me in at night,
He reads me a story,
And we never fight

Who is my father?
He’s a mechanic of toys.
He’s there when I need him,
And I’m one of his boys.

    ''That's being a father''
    Even if some are not one,
    As long they're around.
    To me that's what counts! (10) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
