Memories of Dad

Author Unknown

I will take this special moment

To turn my 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

I’d 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 so hard

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 life 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 summer rain,

He rides upon the wind

And when my path is beaten down

He picks me up again.
