The pages of my heart you turn
And in so doing still I yearn
For days when I was sitting on your knee
And when in memory I allow
To stroll back through what’s over now
Yesteryear so joyful and so free
I wander sweetly home again
To play the image and pretend
Your gentle wisdom lights my fostered mind
And yet I only wish I could
Recapture there my childhood.
And place my hand in yours just one more time.
My Father is a gentle, loving story about a true American hero, devoted family man, and the greatest dad anyone could ever hope for. His tenderness and generosity were ecliped only by his wonderful leadership qualities.
