Our Fathers

by David A. Olds

Our fathers toil with hands and heart
to make our lives complete.
They quietly brave the winter cold,
and endure the summer heat.

Our fathers' lives are busy,
but there's always time for us.
They boldly face the ups and downs
and seldom ever fuss.

Our fathers are the greatest dads;
we know you know this, too.
But thank you for the chance to share
our love for them with you.
