Sunday Postcard - Dad

My father was a huge influence in my life. He was my mentor, my cheerleader, and my role model. He loved me unconditionally. When I saw the quote that accompanies this entry, it seemed so fitting. My father has been gone for many years, but I miss him still. Near the end of his life, I took my Dad for a country drive. It was that drive that occasioned me to write the following poem:


As we rode through summer breezes
The man of courage and I
He taught me still another lesson,
As he had since I was just so high.
For the years had left their burden
And now he walked with a cane
And the body once strong and strapping
Now faltered and gave much pain.
I heard him not once complaining,
As we passed fields of grain on our drive
But commenting on God’s bounty and sunshine,
Saying “It’s a good day to be alive”.
When I find I’m feeling sorry
For the problems and troubles I’ve had
I look to my model of courage
With humble gratitude....I love you, Dad!

Thank you for taking the time to read Hat's off to Fathers everywhere!
