Fields of Blessings on Father's Day


          On Fatherís Day we take the time
          To turn our thoughts to dad
          Thank him for the home he gave
          For all the things we had.

          We think about the fleeting years
          Too quickly, gone for good
          It seems like only yesterday
          Iíd go back if I could.

          A time when dad was always there
          No matter what the weather
          Always strong when things went wrong
          He held our lives together.

          He strived so hard from day to day
          And never once complained
          With steady hands, he worked the land
          And kept the family name.

          He taught us that hard work pays off
          You reap just what you sow
          He said that if you tend your crops
          Your field will overflow.

          My harvest has been bountiful
          He taught me how to give
          In his firm and steadfast way
          He taught me how to live.

          Dad dwells among the angels now
          He left us much too soon
          He glides across a golden field
          Above the harvest moon.

          I see him in the fields of grain
          He rides upon the wind
          And when my path is beaten down
          He picks me up again.
