Poetry For Dads...

Guest Author - Danielle Hollister

WHAT MAKES A DAD...

God took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,

The comforting arm of night,

The wisdom of the ages,

The power of the eagle's flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed,

The patience of eternity,

The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,

When there was nothing more to add,

He knew His masterpiece was complete,

And so,

He called it ... Dad

A FATHER MEANS...

A Father means so many things...

A understanding heart,

A source of strength and of support

Right from the very start.

A constant readiness to help

In a kind and thoughtful way.

With encouragement and forgiveness

No matter what comes your way. A special generosity and always affection, too

A Father means so many things

When he's a man like you...

WALKING WITH DADDY

"Walk a little slower, Daddy,"
Said a child so small.

"I'm following in your footsteps
And I do not want to fall."

"Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see.

So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me."

"Someday when I am all grown up,
You're what I want to be.

Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me."

"And I would want to lead just so
And know that I was true.

So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you."

~ Author Unknown ~

A CAREFUL MAN

A careful man I've got to be,
A little fellow follows me.

I do not dare to go astray
For fear he'll go the self same way.

I must not madly turn aside
Where pleasure's paths are smooth and wide.

And join in wine's revelry,
A little fellow follows me.

I cannot once escape his eyes;
Whatever he sees me do he tries,

Like me he says he's going to be,
That little chap that follows me.

He thinks that I am good and fine,
Believes in every word of mine;

The base in me he must not see,
That little chap that follows me.

I must remember as I go
Through summer sun and winter snow,

I'm building for the years to be,
A little fellow follows me.
