My Father

The pages of my heart you turn

And in so doing still I yearn

For days when I was sitting on your knee

And when in memory I allow

To stroll back through what’s over now

Yesteryear so joyful and so free

I wander sweetly home again

To play the image and pretend

Your gentle wisdom lights my fostered mind

And yet I only wish I could

Recapture there my childhood.

And place my hand in yours just one more time.


My Father is a gentle, loving story about a true American hero, devoted family man, and the greatest dad anyone could ever hope for. His tenderness and generosity were ecliped only by his wonderful leadership qualities.
