A Tribute To Daddy - Poem by Sherrie Stevenson

Because he raised four children
When my mother past away.
Because he preached togetherness
And taught us not to stray. Because He's been both mother and
Father through my childhood years.
Because of all the many times he
Wiped away my tears. Because he remained the calm when
Turbulence entered my life.
Because when he sought love again,
He chose another Christian wife. Because of his accomplishment I can
Hold my head up high.
Because I feel his constant presence,
To me he'll never die. And it is because I am cut from his fabric,
I can watch as he's carried down that isle,
Hold hands with the rest of his children and
Turn my tears into a smile.
