Your shoes are hard to fill,
Your name came from God above;
Who gives most precious gifts
To acknowledge sacrificial love.

Gentleness marks your spirit,
Strength is your basic man,
Warmth your heart embraces
Success always your plan.

You have extended love and guidance
Through all my childhood years,
Comforted hurts and heartaches,
Dried many childish tears.

You have been steadfast beside me,
As I became all strong and grown;
Learning to make the best decisions;
I could not have made it on my own.

I thank you for your faithfulness,
Your patience when I was mad,
For discipline when I needed it,
I sure do love you, DAD!
