I write this Father’s Day poem
to a man
who means a great deal to me,
I hope when your eyes fixate on these words,
you feel the passion I aim to convey.
You’re the man I first came to know,
exhibiting a model of good manners,
putting me in my place. Though bad
I may have been, you nurtured
and cared for me, correcting my wrongs,
praising my rights. Today, I celebrate you,
the man who freely gives of himself,
not for money or fame,
…but for a title he gladly accepts,
I love you doesn’t begin to describe how
much you mean to me but let this poem fill
your heart with my undying love, and
appreciation for you.
Happy Father’s Day!
