Fathers Are Wonderful People

Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should.

And Father struggles daily
To live up to his image
As protector and provider
And hero of the scrimmage

And perhaps that is the reason
We sometimes get the notion
That fathers are not subject
To the thing we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,
Where no one else can see,
You'll find he's sentimental
And as soft as he can be

Fathers are just wonderful
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolades of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness

And like Our Heavenly Father,
He's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.
