Amen to Father’s Day

by Claude Robert Hill, IV

Happy Father’s Day
to the strong men that stayed.
Who teach our children.
That today and
tomorrows yet to come.
Will be the sum of many lessons.
Teachable moments
Forever ingrained
in all our memories.
Our future’s hopes
built by fathers,
who spent their time
on loving their kids.
Even those kids that aren’t
their own.
These are strong men.
More precious than gold.
Who each wear the responsibility of fatherhood.
For these Strong Fathers each walk with
honor and pride.
I salute each of you!
For each day spent with your loving father is
‘Father’s day’ actually.
This is ‘Amen to Father’s Day.’
