HAPPY FATHERS DAY
“ONLY A DAD”
Coming home from the daily race;
Bringing little of gold and fame
To show how well he has played the game,
But glad in his heart that his own rejoice
To see him come and to hear his voice.
Only a dad, of a brood of four,
One of ten million men or more,
Plodding along in the daily strife,
Bearing the whips and scorn of life
With never a whimper of pain or hate,
For the sake of those who at home await.
Only a dad, neither rich nor proud,
Merely one of the surging crowd,
Toiling, striving, from day to day,
Facing whatever may come his way;
Silent, whenever the harsh condemn,
And bearing it all for the love of them.
Only a dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small;
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The deeds that his father did for him.
These are the lines that for him I pen
Only a dad, but the best of men.
Happy Fathers Day to all Dads around the world! I remember reading some time ago; ‘give us a nation of good fathers, and we will have a nation of good children….give us a nation of fathers whom their children can respect, and we will have a nation of children whom the community will respect.”
