A Father's Touch

A father touches a child's life
in so many different ways.
The example that he sets for them
will last them all their days.

His strength that gives security,
an anchor in their life,
gives his children an ability
to face happiness or strife.

His sons see him as an example
and if the man they see
is a loving husband and father,
that's what they'll grow up to be.

His daughters need his approval
so they can grow in their view
and say, as they get older,
"Daddy, I want a husband just like you."

A mother may carry the larger share
of a child's needs and such,
but there is nothing in the world
that compares with a father's touch.
