              "A Fathers Love"

  A fathers love is so firm and direct.
A fathers love will guide and protect.
  A fathers love should always reflect
    much joy and dignity, along with
                 endless respect.

  A fathers love can warm you at night,
A fathers love can show you what's right
A fathers love makes everything alright
A fathers love is such a wonderful sight.

A fathers love can stand the test of time.
   A fathers love is so pure and divine.
    A fathers love is the chosen kind.
      A fathers love is a joy to find.
