Remembering Daddy

You were my hero
Not like all the rest
When it came to fathers
You were always the best.

You were a teacher
Like none I've ever known
Teaching that reaping comes
From the seeds that are sown.

You were my best pal
My first real friend
You remained that to me
Until the very end.

You were the first man
That taught me about love
One pure and simple
Sent from God above.

You were the man
To all others I would compare
You placed the stars in my eyes...
My husband keeps them there.
