MY DAD . . .
The time has arrived to take up my pen
and write a tribute that is long overdue
to the other man in my life, so precious to me ~
Dad ~ I’m a better person because of you.
Precious memories I fondly remember;
how I love thinking back on those days ~
playing the piano for you in the rec room,
receiving your applause and your praise;
sitting beside you at the “Straight A’s” Reds game,
sharing a hot dog, a coke, and the day ~
I had you all to myself . . . and what a blessing that was
~ the real reason I kept earning those “A’s”!
Helping you mow the backyard each Saturday
(this past summer and in my younger years),
or filing out Dodge Reports . . . working in the office after school
~ the beginning of a life-long career!
Watching you groove to Herb Albert, Buddy Rich and Dave Brubeck,
or watching you sketch and print at your drawing board
instilled within me an appreciation for these things,
a love of art, great music . . . and the keyboard!
Dad, you taught me a wonderful work ethic
and you instilled in me your creativity.
I love every moment I spend with you
and I appreciate every word that you say.
I value the moments we spend together ~
you’ve become much more than a father, you know.
You’re my encourager, my inspiration, and a precious, dear friend.
I treasure you, Dad. You’re my hero.
