Father - Poem by Rosie Bourget

Right from the very start,
You are a source of love and support

A tower of strength,
who would go to any length

You mean so many things,
In a million different ways

And even if you are sick or tired,
you go to work each day

You don’t dress just to impress,
To me you are the best

You know what’s important,
And your family is put first

When things aren't going right,
You are my guiding light

In a kind and thoughtful way,
No matter what comes your way

You work long hours every day,
To make an average pay

Teaching me wrong from right,
Now that I’m mindful from left to right

So richly blessed is how I feel,
For having a father just like you

When I think about you father,
And the years we've had to share

I'm thankful just to know,
That love is always there

There's always a place for you,
Deep in my heart

To others you are a simple man,
But to me you are the greatest man

I'll treasure your golden heart,
As long as I shall live

With all you give and all you do,
My hero will always be you

    A wonderful tribute to a loving and supportive father.
    Very thoughtful write.
    Your father must have been very proud of you.
