A Father's Love
by Maria Voelker
( Wales, UK)
Love so true, a father gives,
his children are, forever his.
From cradle, into adulthood,
gives shelter, in the deepest flood.
His arm embraces, you so tender,
for love so true, will always render.
Compassion, in his loving eyes;
Forgiveness, from the heart inside.
The strictest measure, he will place,
conduct his home, with all his grace.
Respect his person, dearest child;
Your father always, by your side.
