I OPENED UP THE ENVELOPE

A CARD SLID INTO VIEW

THE WORDS SAID "HAPPY FATHER'S DAY"

"DEAR DAD, HOW I LOVE YOU"

 

CONTAINED INSIDE, A LOVELY POEM

CHOSEN JUST FOR ME

AND AS I READ, TEARS FILLED MY EYES

TILL I COULD BARELY SEE

 

I CRIED NOT FOR, THE WORDS THAT RHYMED

THOUGH YOU WERE MOST SINCERE,

I CRIED, BECAUSE I'M NOT THE MAN,

THAT YOU SO MUCH REVERE

 

YOUR CARD HAS PLACED A CHALLENGE

IN MY HEART AND IN MY MIND

ITS BROUGHT IN FOCUS, MANY THINGS

WHEREAS I ONCE WAS BLIND

 

I PRAY, THERE COMES, A FATHER'S DAY

THOUGH IT MIGHT SEEM QUITE HARD,

THAT I CAN LIVE UP TO THE POEM.

WRITTEN IN YOUR CARD.
