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

default ©

Published: February 2006

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.
