Mirror – A Poem for Dad

by J. Allen Shaw

Dad, I am often told I am just like you.

I am honored beyond measure if that is true.

You were the best example of what a man should be.

I am overwhelmed that someone would say that of me.

I never told you enough, how proud I am to be called your son,

Now that you are gone, I want to tell everyone.

You gave me much more than a name,

Someday, I hope my son says the same.
