This one is for you daddy.....Happy Father's Day :)

He's rough and lacks in etiquette,
Society would say.
He has no classy attributes,
To help him on his way.

He's not a fancy dresser,
And he's not so trimmed and neat.
With simple clothes and simple shoes,
He wears upon his feet.

He doesn't belong to a club,
Or drive a shiny car.
And when he takes vacations,
He does not go very far.

He doesn't dine on fine cuisine,
To him home made food is a big treat.
And he may use his small hands,
When it is time to eat.

He has a modest little house,
But has all that he needs.
He keeps his garden cut nice and short,
He even trims his weeds.

He's well versed in poetry,
Theater and the arts.
And speech is something,
That he constantly imparts.

He loves the simple things in life,
For riches doesn't thirst.
He knows what is important,
And his family is put first.

The wealth that God has given him,
To treasure in his life.
Loving daughters,
And a very special wife.

He never has much money,
And his life is not a show.
But he is still the richest man,
That I will ever know.

To others he's a complex, ruthless and straight forward man,
And fame he's never had.
But he's the greatest man I know,
He also is my Dad
