A Father's Gifts
The Legacy of Good Fathering
I hope I have not published this on the web before.
If I have, I will have to remove it right away because
that is a violation of Hub rules.
So, if it's up for a few days, you know this is the only
place I have published it.
I can't remember doing it anywhere else but I could have.
A FATHER'S GIFTS
A Father's gifts, in time revealed
Yet even still, not all.
A young man's pride held near his heart
Obscures his Father's call.
Empowered by unwavering love
A Father presses on.
To give his son the best he's got
Until the boy is gone.
A man emerges, makes his way
A Father sheds a tear.
His son reveals throughout his days
A Fathers gifts held dear.
Oh yes its true, he's his own man
But Father can you tell.
The gifts you've given to your son
Are serving him quite well.

Dad's be sure to invest heavily in your children.
There is nothing you can accomplish in life more satisfying than raising great kids.
Success is not measured by the things that perish with your passing but rather by the legacy you leave for your kids and future generations through them.
