Fathers are just WONDERFUL

I dedicate this poem to the two men in my life:
My super daddy who raised me up in the way of the Lord.
My super hubby, the best dad for Bionic.  
Happy Father's day!!!

Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should...

For, somehow, Father seems to be

The man who pays the bills,
While Mother binds up little hurts
And nurses all our ills...

And Father struggles daily

To live up to "HIS IMAGE"
As protector and provider
And "hero or the scrimmage"...

And perhaps that is the reason

We sometimes get the notion,
That Fathers are not subject
To the thing we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,

Where no one else can see
You'll find he's sentimental
And as "soft" as he can be...

But he's so busy every day

In the grueling race of life,
He leaves the sentimental stuff
To his partner and his wife...

But Fathers are just WONDERFUL

In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires

To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...

And like OUR HEAVENLY FATHER,

He's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be ALWAYS ON OUR SIDE.
