A Father’s Role

A Father’s role for his daughter
Is so important and crucial too
She constantly learns so much from him
He is a guide, her whole life through

I was Blessed with you as my Father
God knew the grander, greater plan
Bringing us together for this life
For this role, there could be no other man

The early years were a testing time
As your family developed and grew
I was also beginning to learn, many
Lessons in love and life from you

You’d grown up in another era of time
When men demonstrating love was frowned upon
Of course love was felt, but it was not shown to all
Unchallenged, these family concepts can linger on

There were times that I felt a bit awkward
I didn’t show my love and affection for you
But now I know, this was just a life challenge
Now achieved, Love has not limits, it’s true

There are some things we don’t agree upon
But as I grew up, you would listen to me
Not judging or pushing your own opinions
You’ve given me strength to be who I want to be

Life brought us closer together for many years
Working in the office of your family business G&G
The values I learnt from spending time with you
Were also there for anyone else, who chose to see

Leadership, Loyalty, Strength, Courage, Compassion
Hard-Working, you gave much more than just a wage
Sharing: Achievements, Celebrations, Possessions
Caring for all, you taught lessons that never age

Another valuable life experience you have shown
Is how to rise up after you’ve taken a fall
Life has knocked you down on the ground many times
But you always get up, carry on and succeed to do more

Your Positive attitude is a wonderful thing
You’re always friendly to everyone around
Giving help to anyone who needs it always
Your generous support, so many have found

I have discovered that life is supposed to be fun
It is the essential way to live and be free
From you I could have learned this many years ago
Sport has always been your fun-time, it’s plain to see

Coffee shops and crosswords became a thing
While together we waited for mum to mend
Missing her presence, these passed the time
Once home, mum carried on with the trend

And now that I am living just down the road
Again we get to share some more precious time
Drinking coffee and putting the world to right
Sharing and caring makes everything fine

Please know that I will always be there for you
Our Love is Eternal, so it will never end
Thank you for everything you do.. You are
My precious Father, My Support, My Friend
