I wrote this poem for my daughter's wedding.  She printed it on a scenery picture, framed it & set it next to a framed picture of her Dad.  Brides - feel free to use it or change it as needed.



There Was a Man



Who held me first

Who helped me stand

Who watched me take my 1st steps

Who taught me to ride a bike by letting go

Who encouraged me to do the best I could

Who took me camping, fishing, & hunting

Who took me on hiking & taught me to appreciate nature

Who taught me it was ok to act goofy, to laugh, to cry,

to be wrong so I could learn to be right but not vain



I am proud of this Man who taught me so much

Who set a example & molded me into the person I am today

Who taught me Love is worth waiting for



Who is not here to physically walk me down the aisle but

has been with me spiritually every step of the way

and has prepared me for this day



Thanks Dad  

You Are Forever in My Heart
