Every wrinkle was bought by the sweat of his brow;
Unselfish and giving, yet he was proud.
He was strong, steadfast, a hard working man;
Tried and proven by his thick calloused hands.
A staunch provider, never did they lack;
He carried each burden, on his own back.
He always took care that they had enough;
Whatever they needed, even his love.
He guided them through each step of their lives;
When they needed him, he was there each time.
She's so thankful for the childhood she had;
To be blessed with such a wonderful Dad.
