"What Makes a Dad"

By Brian Carter


God Took the strength of a mountain,
The Majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family's need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was
complete,
And so, He called it .... Dad.
