There is one who stands
Above all others as God planned.
He was there form the start
And from day one he stole my heart.
Always giving, loving, serving, and striving to be
What was best for me.
He worked hard every day
For the bills he had to pay.
Caring for his family needs
He was faithful indeed
Never wavering never failing
Even when his health was ailing
Spending all his energies and time
To care for the families line.
Faithful to keep his word
Never cheating or lie was heard
From his lips the truth did fall
He was always standing tall.
Always a hug or comfort to share
He always let me know he cared.
Sometimes by discipline strongly applied
But always in loving grace to guide.
This man I speak of is my hero
Greater than Apollo or Nero
He is my very own I am glad
My hero, my dad.
