A father is a man

Who is always there

Through happiness and scare

He will always care


A father is a leader

To tell you when you’re wrong

To guide you along

To make you strong


A father is a provider

To put food on the table

So you wont grow hungry

To put clothes on you

So you wont go without


A father is irreplaceable

One who is unique

My father is my hero

His kids are his treasure


He is my father

My father is a man
