What Make's A Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad.

My Hero...

As I ponder the love
that I saw in his eyes,
A Godly love,
given without compromise....
I recall many times
that he stood by my side,
And prodded me on 
with great vigor and pride.
His voice ever confident,
firm and yet fair,
Always speaking with patience,
tenderness and care.
The power and might
of his hands was so sure,
I knew there was nothing
we couldn't endure.
It's true,
a few others provided insight,
Yet, he laid the foundation
that kept me upright.
He's the grandest of men
to have lived on this earth,
although he's not royal
by stature or birth.
He's a man of great dignity,
honor and strength.
His merits are noble,
and of admirable length.
He's far greater
than all other men that I know,
He's my Dad, he's my mentor,
my friend and hero.
