~ My Shining Star, My Dad ~
God needed someone very special
Strong and sturdy too,
To protect all of the family
With great fortitude.
He looked at the majestic mountain
But that was way too high,
Then at a gigantic tree
Not soft enough to be a guy.
The sun too bright, the moon too dim
He'll need to think and plan and scheme,
To build and understand
And hold lots of love within.
A gentle heart, a power to work
Grit to endure, a humorous quirk,
A spring in his step and twinkle in his eye
Muscle to lift and spirit to fly.
So, of His own image, He molded man
And made Himself an eternal friend,
To share His fatherly ways
He put His heart within.
For when he walks upright with God
A man will display His glory too
And as a masterpiece of faith to live
He is a Father of true attribute.
Thank you so much Dad
for being our shining star
today we express our gratitude.
