A quiet man but very wise, hair like silver and gray blue eyes.
His stature small but very strong, he taught us all right from wrong.
He labored hard throughout the years, this quiet man shed so few tears.
Through all the hard times he stood tall, working and teaching and loving us all.
He taught us to hold our heads up high and do our very best, to think for ourselves not follow the rest.
He never complained that his life was tough, he never complained about not having enough.
He made me feel safe and happy and free, he made me feel I’d be all I could be.
If I could just see him one more time, I’d say “Dad you did great we all turned out fine.”
