Lessons Learned From a Father
Why don't we take the time
To count the lessons learned from our Father?
Put in writing the faith, wisdom, and values
Given to us unselfishly
Do I even realize all that he has given?
All that was sacrificed and shared
For my benefit?
What is the best way to say thank you
For a lifetime of gifts
That did not come with ribbons and bows
All went to the clay
That shaped who I have become
His loving hands sculpting my core
Guiding me with love and truth
Then letting me stand on my own
Maybe if I face each day
Going forward with respect and integrity
Accepting my failures
And taking responsibility for my actions
If I never gloat at my victories
Nor let them go to my head
If I am humble and kind
Taking care to share with my children
What was given to me
Or maybe I just say Thank you, Dad
