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.

A Proud father
A Proud father

He is the man, standing proud,

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

Father,

Who he is to me,

And no other man,

I'd ever choose him to be
