My Dad My Hero

by Syl DeFrEItas

I can’t repay the lessons that you taught when I was small

Or give you, gift for gift, the daily treasures I recall

I can’t return encouragement and loving words of praise

In quite the way you did for me, through all my childhood days,

But there is one gift that I can give

It’s all the love you’ve earned

For love is what you always taught

And love is what I learned.

I love you dad
