Embracing my personality

Daddy and Me

by belinda45

A twinkle in your eye, it seems, was always shining there. 
Carefree laughter, infectious grin, and never a worry or care. 
Strong and brave, and talented, too, he was dogmatic in his faith. 
He wore his callouses as an after-thought, content to run his race. 
Compassionately tender in moments of truth. 
Vulnerability shared like never in his youth.
I came to know the legendary man while growing in his care.
And later knew him as he was, wholly standing there. 
Like my dad, I'm playful and fun, as I navigate this life. 
I follow the path set before me, forgetting worry and strife. 

Reflecting on my dadâ??s life and how it impacted me, then and now.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
