to my father..Doug Eck on Father's Day
He carries the weight of the world on his shoulders,
and manages to stand upright,
for his worries aren’t for himself, they are for his biggest fight.
The fight to keep us all on track and support our dreams
and goals…give encouragement in our times of
doubt and advise us through the tolls.
You’ve taught us an amazing strength that many fail to gain,
a rare love for your children and grandchildren that most cannot attain.
You’ve guided us throughout our lives and pushed us to succeed,
embraced each one of our individual selves and taught us how to lead.
You’re our defender in battle…our biggest fan…
the believer of our true potential and the empowered “I can”.
Thank you for always being there to help us on our way,
without you DAD we would not have made it to where we are today.
