My Dad

He was larger than life

He was the law at home

And the law in the streets

He gave long hours

To serve and protect

He gave homework help and advice

To help me grow with love

He could program a computer

And write like a poet

As I continue to mourn his loss

I pay tribute to the great man he was

He was nothing short of my hero
