my mountain

My mountain

I looked out one sunny morning
I saw a mountain standing
On the horizon far away
What could measure its heights?

I looked out one stormy day
I saw a mountain kneeling
Beneath the clouds far away
The rain could not wash it away

I took out one sunny day
For the mountain far away
It was my guide every day
It kept me on my path both day and night

I looked out one night
The stars and moon shown
 On the mountain lighting bright
The snow that now covers its heights

I look out today
And see I was held in his hands near his heart
That mountain was a man
He was never far away, Fathers are built that way
I take this day and every day
And hope you
Hear me say
I love you

thank you and god bless father love you

I agree with Alpana Roy...and it sounds like your Dad was a very special person in your life...and he passed that trait on to his own are had some beautiful mentoring from your must miss him deeply...

Roy, your words have deeply touched my heart. A father, dad, has the strength of a mountain and can weather it all. Thank you for sharing this. It was a wonderful read. And now, may I take a moment to find a tissue :') Happy tears.
