in law Poems
Don't know what your going through
I don't know what
I don't know what your feeling
But I do know how to pray
there was a way to help
relieve your tremendous strain
I wish I could wave
a magic wand
and take away your pain
There isn't much
that I can do
But try and express
that I love you
Oh father-in-law of mine
worry or dismay
soon that day will come
when God helps you on your way
Better days will come to you
and happiness you'll find
will come together again
and all that pain will unwind
know this guy who is stubborn and such, that I love very, very much.
that he has always loved me.
I don't need him to say it, you see.
for each other is felt in our hearts.
so we know what we feel will never depart.
man has always been there to teach me to fish and hunt
or to punish me for
some stupid stunt.
I try to honor and respect him in all that i do
him very proud of me, too.
i've made many mistakes in the past,
man's forgiveness is firm and fast.
he has a kind and gentle heart.
loving guidance i felt from the start.
no matter what he will always be,
greatest man in the world to me.
I know he's human and has his share of flaws,
think about it after all,
for what he taught us in the past
are the things
that will last and last.
then when our children are all grown,
we can teach
them the knowledge that we now own.
for what dad taught us was his legacy,
we should be proud for the world to see.
seen the joy on his face
When his grandson took his first walk
worry and anxiety
When he listens to all the drought talk
I've watched as
he held a kitten
So tenderly in his big, rough paws
Softly stroking, lips
curved in a smile
When the kitten bats at a straw
I've seen him laugh at
Their antics as they run, buck, and play
And I've seen the
tears in his eyes
When things just aren't going his way
Like when he loses
a treasured cow
Or there's a calf he was too late to save
Or one of his
children gets in trouble
And he has to let them go their own way
cancer, and other worse fates
And I'm sure glad he's still around
his guidance, skill, and wisdom
A better man will never be found
wishes he were half the man
That my father-in-law has become
I agree, and
That my children will be like him, some
I wish that I could
give him something
For all that he has given me
His knowledge, love, and
his youngest son
A place to live and room to breathe
But, there isn't enough
money, or words
So I guess all I can do for this man
Is make sure dinner's
in the fridge
And let him know, I'm proud to call him Dad.
