Ode to my Dad

Written for: Poetry Jam - Tribute

Quiet and gentle,
Great strength of character
Peaceful mantle
A true benefactor

Always a good word
Seeing goodness in all
Faced life undeterred
Through many a squall

Loving and kind
Humble and unassuming
Beautiful mind
Never complaining

A smile on his face
Always encouraging
Filled with grace
Ever forgiving

This was my dad
A man amazing and rare
I was truly blessed 
To have been in his care

~x~
Be at peace Dad.
