“My Father’s Heart”

My Father’s Heart
By Heather Shirley 

The love of my father is deep within his heart.
He has loved me right from the start.

He holds me in his hard working hands.
Watching me grow, how he wishes time would slow.

From a tiny infant to all grown up.
He will love me no matter what.

The warm embrace of his hugs everyday.
Somehow helps me start my day.

I love my father deep down in my heart.
For I understood his love for me, right from the start.
