Dad, you infused my life with tuneful sound,
Rich harmony in flight,
Filled my mind, with sweet refrain
To overflow my heart with light.
Today, I heard our music play
And thought of you, just as I do,
And before another minute passed I knew
I had to share this card with you.
Your calming presence was euphonic
To wipe away my tears,
Orchestrating all your strength
To calm my childhood fears.
You stood on high to pass the baton,
The life of you, to me
To show me goodness of our God,
Then, with wisdom set me free.
I see now, you're delighting in
The song, you put in me, respond-
As I carry you, concordantly,
Your life, in me, belongs.
That means you are for always,
In me, each note, you live,
Of heart and time and wondrous love
Your life is mine, to give.
You sang to me your song of love
Up every mountain that I climbed,
I thank God for the special Dad
Always, will be mine.
Because you are so special
The only sonnet I can play,
Is for a Father's day, most blessed
This, I sincerely pray.

Poetry from the heart
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want, is to sing it out loud
So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
Happy Father's Day !
