Poem- The Man
A little note fell out of my Father's Day card today.
Instructions for a surprise activity perhaps, or directions for a family meal?
No, it was nicer than that. My son had written his own poem about me and I wanted to share it with you.

The provider, working hard,
His feelings, hidden in shroud,
The reader of this card
He is the one I cherish
He who gives me hell,
He who means so much
My feelings, I can't quite tell
I respect him beyond all
Love him beyond reason,
Always listening for his call
He lives with me, through the season
Who he is to me,
And no other man,
I'd ever choose him to be
