What kinds of heroes are there?

Me too, but my dad is always at the coast for his work. I miss him so much, and now he is never here for Father's Day. I wish he could stay at home with my family.

A Different Kind Of Hero

©

Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006 with permission of the author.

He is not the kind of hero who is fighting in the war.
He is not one who sails offshore.

I don't call him Sergeant, Captain, or Sir.
His title is DAD; that is for sure!

He is the fixer of my broken things
And the household doctor when I get bee stings.

He picks me up when I fall down 
And always turns my frown upside down.

He keeps me safe when I sleep at night. 
He gives me seconds when I have a big appetite.

That's my Dad. That's who he is.
He deserves a medal for the things he did.

I have a dad who is always there to show that he cares. he set me a good example. Now I am a missionary and I am too far to be with him. I love him so much and I miss him..
