He's The American Dad - Poem by Patricia Kelley

He gets up in the morning, giving his wife a kiss.
She feels blessed.
He walks out the front door, not knowing, when he'll return.
The clock burns.
He's the American dad.
He later walks in from a hard day's work.
Feeling the aches and pains of the day,
He doesn't give up.
Believing in a better tomorrow,
He's the American dad.
With his Bible setting on top of his nightstand,
He stays prepared for the unexpected,
With his guns fully loaded.
Whether, the enemy attacks or foe,
He stands ready.
He's the American dad.
Ready to protect, his family and country,
He stands alert to all the sounds.
When the dogs bark, he walks out to check.
Any unfamiliar noise or sound around his property.
His home is filled with laughter and love.
Discipline with correction, leading kids in the right direction.
With the love of God, family and country, he feels ready to protect and serve.
He's the American Dad.
