Even Though We’ve Lived Apart (A Tribute To My Father)

Posted on Updated on

A tribute to my father today. A man who raised four children as a widower. How he kept it together we’ll never comprehend. And even although we are scattered around the world now, the influence of this wonderful man keeps as all together…

So here’s a poem I found.

Even though we’ve lived apart, I do not love you less. There’s provision in the heart For storing tenderness.

There’s a love that like a star Must reconfigure space To turn the far-flung wanderers Towards some predestined grace.

Time matters not, nor pain, nor death, Nor fate as hard as stone. This truth needs but a single breath, And that we now have known.

Ah, Father! What a joy to live With love at last expressed! Life has no greater gift to give Than that with which we’re blessed.

Silent and Strong Dad

Posted on

He never looks for praises
He’s never one to boast
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most
His dreams are seldom spoken
His wants are very few
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken too
He’s there…. A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold to
In times of stress and strife
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.

– Karen Boyer

To all the fathers out there – have a great day!
