He never looked for praises.
He was never one to boast.
He just went on quietly working
for those he loved the most.
His dreams were seldom spoken.
His wants were very few.
And most of the time his worries
went unspoken too.
He’s there a firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold unto
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad.
One of our greatest blessing
The man that we called “Dad”!
A Dad leaves his mark in the world through
the love he gives his Family.
