I just spoke with my dad.
He has such an intelligent mind
he knows of the love one can find
he is able to see things before rather than behind.
He chooses to do his own thing
never being forced into a ring.
He has a heart of gold
that will never be bought nor sold.
He has a strong moral base
he takes life case by case.
His charm will woo anyone
yet is big enough to roll up his sleeves to things done.
He shines as bright as the noonday’s sun
and will never shy away from fun.
He says he’s proud and has faith in me
to take the opportunities that I can see.
He knows I’ll choose my own path
creating my own special habitat.
He is able to see beyond those around
yet he stays in our hometown
out in the country is where he can always be found.
He told me I’m not lucky, that it’s been determination
that has fueled my ambition.
He said I’ve created everything good
by being the very best that I could.
He says I’m the one who has created my success
by believing in my growth and doing my best.
God I love my father.
He is unlike any other.
A great man indeed
and always there when I need.
I am grateful to be his daughter
and that he’s my friend and my father.
