This is a beautiful poem that I wish I had read before my father passed away, I wish he was alive still so I could send him this poem, because it had everything I always wanted to tell my daddy.

My Special Hero

When I was a baby
You would hold me in your arms
I felt the love and tenderness
Keeping me safe from harm.

I would look up into your eyes
And all the love I would see
How did I get so lucky
You were the dad chosen for me.

There is something special
About a Father's love
Seems it was sent to me
From someplace up above.

Our love is everlasting
I just wanted you to know
That you are my special hero
And wanted to tell you so.
