A Fathers Day Sonnet
The following poem was written by me for my father. Dad was always there for me and my brother and sister. His loving guidance helped us grow into who we are now, his lessons still guide my direction in so many ways.
I find it somewhat sad that many of us take so long to realize what our parents mean to us. I feel lucky to have learned this lesson now, while my father is still here and I am able to share my love and appreciation. A thousand thank you's could never be enough, yet I will always try.
To My Father
Trinkets of wisdom bestowed upon me
Those lessons of yesteryear still hold true
Beacons of hope when my eyes could not see
Your love my strength when I was feeling blue
Those lazy afternoons spent playing ball
Steady hand as I learned to ride a bike
Encouraging words after my first fall
And those stern words that no child seems to like
You stood a pillar of strength in my eyes
When I was weak, your arms made me strong
Till the day, through tears, we said our good-byes
A young man trying to choose right from wrong
My thoughts for you, my father, on this day
From that young boys heart, happy father's day
