Dad

A Father's Day Poem  by Sherie Sloane

Dad and our little man, watching the sunset.
One of my favorite random shot.

Because of you
I am steadfast and strong
Carrying on through the storm

Because of you
I knew right from wrong
Learning when to drift along

Because of you
I found courage in fear
Daring trepidation in tiers

Because of you
I stood up after a fall
Recognizing I never lost it all

Because of you
I triumphed after each loss
Applauding wisdom amidst the cost

Because of you
I am cherished and spirit's free
Living and loving in higher degree

Advance Happy Father's Day to all dads out there.  

I wrote this poem last year, thinking about my own Dad and all the years he stood by us through good times and tough ones.  

Dad, this is for you.  May our love reach you in heaven.  I miss you, we all do.

Feel free to copy the poem (please include author's name) and give it to the special men in your lives.
