    He is...Father


    ...He is

    the shine in a little girl's eyes
    the icon of a son in the mirror
    a husband to his woman
    a provider & a leader
    the endearing traits of a real man
    personified in how He lives

    ...He is

    the strength of the family unit
    the shelter in a raging storm
    a patriarch to the ancestral tree
    his seed produces legacies
    to carry on
    his
    dynasty

    ...He is

    stability in the midst of adversity
    He rules with a gentle hand
    teaches his daughter how to be loved
    to accept nothing less than a true man
    He instills pride in his son
    to be the best Man that He can be


    Once a year is not enough
    to give credit where it is due

    ...He is

    a monumental influence
    to the innocence of youth
    a consonant pillar of masculinity
    without a heavy hand as proof
    if you had to measure A Man
    in all He say or do
    it is in the path He chooses to follow
    it is the fruits of his wealthy spirit
    that makes him so unique

    it is He...

    a Father

    The qualities of a hero UnSung

    three hundred sixty four

    days

    of

    the

    year


    On this special day

    I
    salute
    you

    *Fathers*

    Dear Father,

    I'll never allow them to confine you too 1-day a year,
    when you give your all, every day you breath air.

    I know there's some fathers that's not always there...
    but know just the same, your children still care.

    sociely is not always played out in our favor
    yet "YOU" my dear father, bring out the real flavor.

    Loved your piece poet, ...^5 to your dad, and the rest that's out there,
    As we rubble in the joy ...and send out a "Daddy-Cheer" :toast:

    Beautiful write...

    This is an amazing portrait of a father and his importance.
    I love these lines,
    A vision I could never get enough of seeing is a father interacting with his children.

    Great tribute Sr!

    Singing high praises to such deserving fathers, and there are plenty dads out there who unfortunately remain unsung. Absolutely beautiful sis.

    *Thank u Queen for your flow, each Father is unique in their own way. Some give more, others less but if they are in the life of their child they ARE an INFLUENCE. The influence can be negative or positive...the choice is in the character of the MAN.

    I'm speaking from experience.


    *Thank you UnknownPoet, I appreciate you responding. My Father wasn't a perfect man, but he was there to instill in me everything I needed to be the woman I am today.


    *Hey Hodee, so good to see you. Your most welcome, it is the least I can do for all the wonderful Fathers, it is a tribute most deserved.

    *Thanx Jr, I too..love to see the interaction between a Father and child, it is a heartwarming experience. It brings a sentimental smile...everytime.

    *Thanx 4ever, I'm very pleased you enjoyed the flow. Much love backatcha!


    *Cherryblossom,

    No apologies necessary, Sis. I appreciate your response whenever you hit me...thank u!


    *I very much appreciate your read & response Watz, yes they are unsung,
    they deserve the recognition every day.


    I can never know what it's like to be or think as a man. However, watching my Father growing up I retained so much visual information about how a man should and shouldn't behave.
    How a woman should and should not be treated and of course the inside info on men was invaluable....lol.
    Those lessons were instrumental in my growth as a woman and my choice in a man.

    If some Daddys knew that importance, they would be in their child's life every step of the way....it is so necessary for the very stability, growth and survival of the child.

    sorry for my tardiness

    wonderful enlightenment into the role of a father...and the effect he has on those looking up to him; wife, daughter, son...and those extended ones who see him as an example of what they're missing. WONDERFUL JOB YOU DID HERE.

    THANK YOU.

    your current is strong...your flow is tight

    the river floweth.
