I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Poetry: A Tribute for Father's Day is an article with two poems. I let this day sneak up on me, but I tried to jot down a few notes. Fathers day is a day we are thankful for our dads, but I hope we all find reasons to be grateful on every day throughout the year.

"The Stars Lined Up"
The stars must have lined up perfectly
on the day I was born
to bless me with a father like him.
Whenever someone needs a helping hand
he reaches out
even if he disagrees with their life choices.
When he doesn’t feel up to par
it doesn’t stop him,
he keeps going, not leaving a spare moment.
If life deals him a bad hand
turning his world upside down
he keeps smiling
like he knows what’s behind the next door.
He seems to have a special gift
living life without constant worry,
not letting those little things get him down.
As he goes about his day,
his good moral value shines through
showing us the value of life.
"The Last of His Kind"
His mind is sharp as a tack,
witty and quick to respond
with wisdom pouring through his words,
stubborn as a mule
with his mannerism set in stone.
He’ll lend you a helping hand,
but if you cross him wrong
he’ll tell you where you stand.
He doesn’t put on airs
or pretend he’s better
but he’ll let you know
if your ways are not up to par.
He’ll offer advice
but leave the decision in your capable hands,
reminding you it’s your life to live.
He’s the last of his kind
with his friends now departed,
he pays no attention to dates on the calendar,
but looks forward to each morning
blessing him with one more day.
