Hero of Mine

Larger than life, hero of mine
Working hard to provide
Family man, father of two
Lawyer by day, farmer too
Quiet, smart, humor so dry
Believing in me, as long as I try
Pushing hard, wants the best
Proud of me, no need to guess
Smiles so big, arms so strong
Cross country trips, filled with song
Love of family a driving force
Slow and steady was his course
Didn’t slow down til dementia set in
Battling Alzheimer’s, the disease will win
His memories fade, mine are stored
Hero of mine, deserves an award!
