Fathers Wanted

Fathers Indeed!


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

Let them want to be like you.


A father makes time for his children

Though worldly demands pull him hard.

He will shorten a meeting

Postpone a lunch

His precious kids to reward.


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

Let them want to be like you.


A father works hard

And provides for his kids

He toils through sun

He toils through snow,

He does not quit

When he doesn't want to go.

He does not say, Honey, you take the reins

I've done enough

Life's too much a bother.


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

Let them want to be like you.


A father teaches his kids

To honor women -

He loves their mom

With kind words, respect and affection.

And even when the wind's blow shifts

He's careful, discrete

And quickly takes one for his kids.


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

Let them want to be like you.


A father makes mistakes

And admits he's wrong.

He's more broken by the pain

His child displays

Than he's stubborn in showing he's man.


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

Let them want to be like you.


A father who loves the Lord

Will make the time to fully acquaint

His kids with the Giver of life.

He does not send his kids

But takes them there

To the place where likeminded meet to cheer

The Creator of all - deserving all praise.

This father's actions and words align

His character's sound

No stone's left unturned.


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

Let them want to be like you.


A father knows

His role's a privilege

But it takes much

Sometimes less than he can give.

It hurts when he comes up short

Yet he plods on and on and on,

Sometimes without cheer,

For he knows that though imperfect -

Nothing beats being a Dad

Who is always there.


Fathers, be real,

Loving and true;

Your children are watching

They'll give the world to be like you.
