A father is a hero, a birthday poem for @WillieWhitaker by Tracy Diane Miller

To look in the mirror
What might you see
The hero to your children
You have come to be
With God’s help
He held your hand
To teach your children
So they understand
The lessons of compassion
To commit to their mind
To lead their lives with positivity
And kindness they will find
The lessons of gratitude
Life is a series of steps
Joy can be found
Behind the times we have wept
The lessons of hard work
To rise after a fall
Success is a test
Achieved from struggle after all
You are a champion
In all of these life lessons
A friend
A hero
A father
It is so important
It is true
I look at you
With this poem I say
My best wishes
As you celebrate your birthday
