To Dad: A Father’s Day Tribute ♥

Mom and Dad wedding 1945

From Air Force days
to a forever blind date
Six decades of sharing love
to his lovely soul mate

He misses her now
but has managed along
with support of three daughters
He’s where he belongs

His memory entertains
from WWII days
amazing those who listen
Is 93 his true age?

He’s able to witness
a senior graduation
He’s so proud of our son
His face wears true elation

Then one incident
shakes up our world
The worst of thoughts
in my mind unfurl

But with God’s blessing
and His ideal timing
this story ends happily
Our sun remains shining

Dad

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY, DAD and GRANDPA! WE LOVE YOU!
WE HAD A SCARE, BUT WE’RE SO THANKFUL YOU’RE OKAY
AND YOU WERE ABLE TO JOIN US IN CELEBRATING
YOUR GRANDSON’S GRADUATION.

I ALSO SEND LOVING WISHES TO MY HUBBY,
MY FATHER-IN-LAW AND ALL FATHER’S
WHO HAVE LAID A SOLID FOUNDATION
FOR THEIR FAMILIES!

    • Thanks so much, Chris, for everything! Happy endings are wonderful, aren’t they? It was a great visit and now, back to work! 🙂 And yes, I had to include wishes for all fathers, too! Love and hugs! HBL xxx ♥

    • Aww..thanks, Diane, what a night! 🙂 The visit was great and it was hard saying “good-bye.” But, I’ll make a trip to see him next month…love and hugs to you, too! xoxo

  2. So beautiful my friend. I am so happy for you all that your Dad is well and your day went so beautifully. We had a lovely Father’s Day as well, the kids and Grandkidlets were here and fun was had by all.
    The weirdest thing happened to me. I did up a Father’s Day post and posted it and it literally disappeared. I can’t even find it in my drafts. Strange~ Things that make you go hmmmmm. 🙂 Oh well. I always think maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. Happy Monday my friend. Hugs, Renee ♥

    • Thanks, Renee! Glad you had a great celebration, too, but that is strange about your disappearing post…well, maybe it wasn’t meant to be or you could possibly edit it for another day…Happy Wednesday and lots of hugs to you! xo
