He Walked Tall

How many men come and go--
   Touch our lives and help us grow?
One such man walked very tall
   He held us close, lest we might fall.

Yes, he walked tall - you can't deny
   and when he left us, we asked why?
Our beloved Dad was called away--
   To think of it now still makes us sway.

But this kind man would hope that we
         Would travel on so we might see
 That we all must "walk tall" and leave our mark--
Before our sun sets, before the dark.

So when memories flood your mind,
    Let a smile break out and you will find--
Those memories of how he loved to laugh--
still linger,
     The memories of "our Dad", "our Friend", will last!

In memory of our Dad
