MY FATHER'S LOVE


Sometimes an act of love can be
An act of procreation.

We don't always feel or know for sure
The moment of the situation.

A long time ago a young couple met --
They sensed God's subtle intention.

Both had motivation so pure --
It'll always deserve honorable mention.

The pair exchanged vows before a clergyman
December fourth of nineteen-thirty.

We cannot stoop to play favorites, I know --
No one is more than half of the unity.

But whether in war or any other
Situation that no one could ever foresee

Had there ever been a reason, I know,
My father was willing to die for me.
