My Father Taught Me

    With confidence

    My father taught me to listen
    To wild birds’ morning song,
    To laughter of the rippling brook,
    To gladness all day long.
    My father taught me courage.
    When I would walk away
    And leave unpleasant work undone,
    He gave me strength to stay.
    At evening when dark shadows
    Were waiting everywhere,
    He helped me find a special Friend.
    My father taught me prayer.
