A Good Father

The herald of your stories and epics of your tales,
The poems of your love, the poetry when they fail,
The wailing of your worst and the whispers of the bad,
We heard of them all but, still, you are a great Dad!

But nothing is louder than your songs in the night
When you speak of no word but embrace us so tight,
The voice of your love is stronger than them all,
Powerful than a storm — a fortress, and a wall.

You know what we need ahead of our words,
A father and a friend — you give us the world.
Beyond silver and gold, your love immeasurable,
On the walls of our home, your care unimaginable.

You’re a good father, no one can deny,
The wonder of your love, the glory of your smile,
You’re a good father, no one can oppose,
The treasure of our hearts and pillar of our house.
