Just Dad


His hair is turning silver
He has a heart of gold.
This precious one that we call Dad
A sweet spirit to behold.

He always has a kind word
To speak of those he knows.
There's so much respect and love
Shown him where ever he goes.

His quiet strength and gentleness
Makes him a special kind.
Technically he's my father-in-law
But he's just Dad, in my mind.
