Fathers, do not exasperate your
instead, bring them up in the
and instruction of the Lord.
Thoughts of yesterday
still come to mind
Many sacrifices dad you had to make:
To keep the family all together,
Dad you toiled hard in winds and weather.
My thoughts go back to when I was young
My dad worked from morning until set of sun:
He toiled hard as he worked in the heat,
To keep the family happy and complete.
My dad was loving kind and so true
A dad who was patient in all that we do:
Although they lived such busy lives,
Today dad we still think the world of you.
He always gave love, strength and support
He found the time for caring and sharing,
On this special day we are glad,
That God sent you to be our dad.
Dad so many things you taught us
Always upon your love we could depend:
A fathers love holds a special part,
You were our dad and our best friend.
Another year has come
Your face I still see in memory:
I think of all the yesterdays,
When you were here with me.
When my time on earth is ended
I will come to live with God and you,
Where there's no hurt, suffering or pain,
In God's celestial city we will live again.
I know you are enjoying your home in heaven
Singing and praising your Lord and King;
Walking and talking on streets of purest gold,
In that beautiful city where you'll never grow
Now you are resting from the cares of the past
Living with Jesus in your new home at last,
You were our hero, in our hearts you are alive,
Today dad, "Happy Father's Day" June 19, 2005.
