Dad seems the least appreciated in the family. This poem is a tribute to us "DADS" who seems to get little attention or recognition.


Dad of all the family members you’re hardly ever mentioned
          Through all the family hoopla you gets least attention
We hardly ever see you as you try to get some rest
          From a weary workday to give us our very best.
When we go out for recreation and a little play
          To have a little peace and contentment at home you want to stay
But through it all you pack your things and come
          To bring cheer and a smile to the faces of everyone.
Dad, we owe you very much for your love and sacrifice
          And pray to God up above to make your days so nice
As you reflect on God’s helping hand
          To give you the strength to stand.
You comfort us everyday and protect and keep us full of joy
          It’s so sweet and wonderful the gentleness you employ
There are always joyful moments and none ever sad
          And we owe it all to the one and only, our ever loving Dad.

The person who usually is recognized the least, yet carries the burdens so artfully, well said...

Be always safe,
