The Real Hero

He wakes in the early morning to prepare for his day

Hard labor is what ends up making the pay

He hurts every morning and he hurts every night

He still puts on a smile and hugs his family so tight


He fixes what is broken whether a car or a heart

He always supports me even when we’re apart

Helping people is what he does best

He puts others first even when he needs rest


He is always the loudest fan in the crowd

He makes sure to show that he is always so proud

He cheers for everyone and has a heart of gold

His voice is always heard and it never gets old


He is strong when times are sad and tough

He always tells me that I am good enough

His sense of humor is one of his best traits

He is a father of two and is he’s pretty great


He puts on a brave face every day

He’ll never leave me or go away

He is truly the best dad and no one compares

He is the greatest hero and he always cares
