The Heroes of my Life

Happy Father’s Day in Heaven Dad, and to my husband, the two great heroes of my life.

The first great hero,

my young heart ever knew,

was the man who taught me as I grew.

Who shared in all my joys,

and dried so many tears.

Admonished with a word,

and vanquished all my fears.

Who guided all my steps,

and taught me wrong from right.

Who let me spread my wings,

stood back as I took flight.

Who gave his all to us,

my sisters and my brothers.

Showed us how to love,

Through the love he gave our mother.

Until on that sacred day,

a woman fully grown,

my first hero walked me down the aisle,

and gave me to hero of my own.
