Happy Father's Day!

Is it? So many argue this day about said statement. In my heart, however, there be no quarrel. I am a very blessed man to say "Happy Father's Day" to my daddy with no apprehensions!

As far as I remember,
(and mostly for the best,)
my daddy, he is always there;
I am so very blessed!
So stellar, his provision,
and even more than 'need;'
so many his examples
to use with my own seed.

A worker by example,
a leader in his field;
that ethic, ever stellar,
unto each man revealed!
Seen by these, his children
who yet would imitate;
though one, alone, considered
I would see the man as 'great!'

And realize I rarity
to see my dad as such;
I treasure yet his warm embrace
and his loving touch.
His words containing wisdom yet,
through the miles between,
and look I forward to that visit
that is always seen!

Happy Father's Day, Daddy! I thank God for you!
Jimmy
