Poem by Cookie - 'MY HERO'

The following poem was created by Cookie who lives in Cagayan de Oro City in the Philippines. Where she lives is a very special place for me. My wife Virginia of 3 years now is also from Cagayan de Oro City, and I have some very fond memories there. The following poem that Cookie wrote shows the obvious very special connection to her father. It is a very sweet poem, and it shows her most inner feeling for her father. I commend her for speaking outright from her heart, and sharing her personal feelings about her father in the form of this poem. Cookie, I have taken the liberty in publishing your poem on this blog. The idea for this blog came from reading the poem below from your blog 'My Personal Touch' about your 'hero', your father. This blog 'Poems from the Heart' exists because of YOU!

Dad and the baby

MY HERO
As I ponder the love that I saw in his eyes,
A Godly love, given without compromise....
I recall many times that he stood by my side,
And prodded me on with great vigor and pride.

His voice ever confident, firm and yet fair,
Always speaking with patience, tenderness and care.
The power and might of his hands was so sure,
I knew there was nothing we couldn't endure.

It's true, a few others provided insight,
Yet, he laid the foundation that kept me upright.
He's the grandest of men to have lived on this earth,
Although he's not royal by stature or birth.

He's a man of great dignity, honor and strength.
His merits are noble, and of admirable length.
He's far greater than all other men that I know,
He's my Dad, he's my mentor, my friend and hero.
