Growing up to be a man
He loves me with all his heart
Tough discipline dealt out making me wish
To be better
Working hard to help mold me
into what i am today
holding my hand through
All the tough times
And laughing with me through
The good ones
Proud to call him
Dad
He would give his life
To save mine
Bound by duty,
To country, self, God, and sons
Everything he did,
He did it with love
He has shown me what life means
He is in my heart,
My soul,
And my mind.
There is a rhythm in my soul
That beats every day that I live

Wow.  DK, how sad that no one welcomed you to PiP. I do hope you return and share your poems. I love how you admire your Dad.

Welcome DK! I think you've set a standard of emotion here and bet your dad would love this!
Have fun here!

I so agree with everyone, especially you James for referencing one of the greatest dedications to 'dad'.

So here it is with Paul Petersen and all praises to your wonderful post DK:

The Donna Reed Show : My Dad

(this takes you to the google page where the song is located. The episode link wants a couple of bucks for the usage.)

She told me "play one for your supper Danny and maybe you'll get breakfast".
