For Father's Day - What is a Father?

Saturday, June 20, 2015

On Father’s Day, in remembrance of my own father who died in 1999. I know that raising a daughter often confused him but he tried his best. I miss you and love you daddy…

What is a Father?



Someone who stands by you



Protects you



Is proud of you



Does fun things with you



Is confused by your fashion sense



... and choice of friends



Always tries to be strong



And gentle



And caring



He listens to you



….even if he doesn’t understand what he’s hearing



He gives advice



and makes you feel special and important



And, most of all, loved

    I've been workin' as a Temp
    At the local factory
    I hope they hire me on full time
    I got shoes to buy
    N' mouths ta feed

    I drive a "buy here - pay here" truck
    It ain't new but it is - ta me
    Now it ain't much - but it fires right up
    And gets me from - A ta B

    What puts the dirt underneath my nails
    What keeps the calluses on my hands
    Family Man

    They're the world my world revolves around
    My sacred piece - of solid ground
    The flesh n' bone
    That gives me strength ta stand

    They are the fire in my - drivin' on
    The drive behind my - comin' home
    The livin' breathin' reason that I am
    A Family Man

    There's dirty shirts ta wash
    Dishes in the sink ta do
    There's how many times
    Does 17 go - in - to 52

    There's bedtime prayers to pray
    Sleep tights and I love you's
    N' then there's a pair of eyes
    I get to lose myself into

    What keeps me keepin' the faith
    What makes me believe I can
    Family Man

    They're the world my world revolves around
    My sacred piece - of solid ground
    The flesh n' bone
    That gives me strength - ta stand

    They are the fire in - my drivin' on
    The drive behind my - comin' home
    The livin' breathin' reason that - I am
    A Family Man

    They're the fire in my - drivin' on
    The drive behind my - comin' home
    The liviin' breathin' reason that I am

    What a beautiful tribute to your dad!

    My father walked out on me when I was 2 years old, and my brother and sister were 1 and 3 years old. However, my DADDY married our mom and adopted all three of us right there on the spot! I LOVE MY DADDY!!!!

    Blessings!
