Mother's brother
Took me in as his daughter
Wiped the tears from my face
Father took off, so he filled his place
No questions about his loyalty
The love he shows already answered them for me
Day and night I bow and pray
Giving God praise for letting him stay in my life another day
My protector when life gets rough
No one can break our bond, because it's strong and tough
In his eyes he reveals a secret
Something that is so beautiful, but only we share it
His love is pure, like no other
Thank you grandma for having my mother's brother.

My dads brother was there for me I call him my Uncle Daddy!!!! He has been a Father, Friend. He has shown me over the years how a Husband is supposed to be. A gentleman as well. He is a Blessing to me and my family . I remember growing up him and a
Auntie would get on me like if I wouldn't obey my mother they would pull out the Bible and turn to Esph.6:1. It talks about children obey your parents ....... I'm sitting there saying but all don't understand and they would say whether you think they're wrong or right ...... ok I give up They really helped me That's why I Love them soooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!

When I read this it made me cry my dad passed away when I was 8 and my Uncle has always been there for me and I talk to him about everything I would talk to my daddy about and he guides me through everything and I thank god that we are so close. I feel like he is the only one I can open up to and I'm so glad to have him in my life....

My dad took off when I was about 5 years old and I'm 26 years old now. My uncle helped my mom raise me and my 3 siblings. He has never been married and when people ask him why he hasn't gotten married and had children of his own, he says, "why should I? I have 4 kids already!" referring to me and my siblings. I could never thank him enough for sacrificing his own life to give us ours...this poem really touched me..

I have tears in my eyes, this poem feels like it has also been written for me. I have an uncle who has a heart of gold. He is on dialysis and can no longer live near my grandparents. I pray to God that he may find a suitable donor for him. I love you my uncle John!
