A wealth of wisdom

The spirit is more comely than the flesh.
Equally, two mysteries might mesh,
Paired by nature or by neighborhood
Fathers are defined by how they love,
And not by how they multiply or breed.

How you’ve loved me does your kinship prove.
Each child must turn when life’s too hard to bear,
Regarding someone’s arms or empty air.
So do I turn, and always you are there.”

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 serenity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined the qualities
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, he called it “Dad.”

And I must say I am glad my mom picked you.

Watching me grow up to this very day.

And that’s why I love you without a doubt.
So what can I say to a man that has everything and knows every thing there is to know?
Well, how about I love you dad and thanks for helping me grow.”
