    Greetings fellow poetry enthusiasts!

    I hope you are enjoying your experience here on the forum today.

    Here's a poem for a big milestone approaching!

    Happy 90th birthday!

    Our Dad has many fine qualities that we could list
    It sure is a temptation we find hard to resist
    He is patient and understanding and remarkably calm
    If we just follow his example we will do no real harm

    You'll never meet anyone as humble as Dad
    He is also quite modest I hasten to add
    Our Dad believes in always doing the right thing
    For 64 years he has worn his wedding ring

    Dad taught us to approach life with the right attitude
    He encouraged us to always practice gratitude
    We also learned to treat people with the proper respect
    Our character is something we all need to protect

    Our Dad no longer needs to go to work
    Happily this has not turned him into a jerk
    You will often find him reading a new book
    Soups and curries are his favourite dishes to cook

    Did I mention Dad has been married for 64 years
    He has shared plenty of laughs along with a few tears
    He must know some secrets to make your marriage last
    If he ever loses his cool he recovers real fast

    Our Dad is really the ideal family man
    Especially when things don't go according to plan
    He loves to spend time playing with the family's dogs
    I am fairly certain he has never worn clogs

    Dad doesn't judge people according to their looks
    He feeds his curious brain with many interesting books
    Our Dad is quite loyal to his family & friends
    We will all be so sad when his current long life ends

    Hope you have a great day!

    :)

    Thanks!

    I intend to read it next Tuesday on his birthday. Not many reach 90 and still living at home with a marriage of 64 years!

    Enjoy the rest of your day!

    :)
