My Safe Harbor

His Voice is as gentle as the wind
His arm as loving as our almighty above
His eyes full of joy and happiness
His heart as calm as the ocean on a beautiful day

His voice speaks only the truth
His ears always open when needed
His nose can smell trouble and a broken heart
His mind always focused on his loved ones

His feet stand still, firm and confident
His life is dedicated to his family
His blessings go with me wherever I go
His words is what keeping me standing all these years

He’s my rock, my safe harbor
He’s that one person I turn to when life gets tough
He’s my hero, My guardian angel
He’s the main man of my life
And I love you DAD with all my heart
