Southern Gentleman

Daddy
A quiet, gentle man and gentleman.
Bluest of blue eyes.
The soft southern drawl and deep baritone voice.
Has always seemed so tall to me.
Married quite young.
Had one boy and a passel of girls.
Devoted to my mother and his family.
A gentleman farmer who loves the land and takes care of it.
From a long line of gentleman farmers going back to the start of the country.
Prayers at night full of praise and thanksgiving.
"Thank ye, Sweet Jesus."
Quiet words of wisdom shared at the perfect moment.
Loves old Baptist hymns.
A Korean War veteran who would rather forget that time.
Was the much longed for first son and the apple of his daddy's eye.
Is our entire world.


Happy Father's Day
