My Hero

I wrote this for the greatest man who I have ever met in my life. I was able to read this too him on his deathbed and after he heard it he told me he was not that good, which in fact proved he was that good.

I will always remember you
You will always be with me
Your voice I still hear every day
The sound of wisdom to help me see

You gave me a strong foundation that keeps me upright
You taught me the will to never give up the fight
I know there is nothing I cannot endure
The sense of fairness, honesty, and integrity I learned from you, for sure

Unconditional love is what you always gave
Never raising your voice in anger, but confident, firm and fair
Respected by many as your council was true
A handsome little devil, even with no hair

A sense of humor whose timing was always right
A polished head which was continuously bright
Yet, thru good times and bad, your journey was always true
You did the right things to get all of us thru

Even though this journey is done
There is no need for any regrets
As your son I know who your are
And for the rest of my life I will never forget

Though I am truly saddened to see you leave
I know in my heart you did everything right, I believe
You are greater than all the men that I know
You are not only my Dad, but my mentor, friend and my hero
