Daily Prompt: Cupid’s Arrow!

It’s Valentine’s Day, so write an ode to someone or something you love. Bonus points for poetry!

Today is V-Day. Something I still haven’t found the logic behind to. I guess it’s just me. Anyway, today V-Day, tomorrow B-Day. That’s right, it’s my father’s 57th birthday tomorrow, and here’s a poem I wrote for him. Enjoy!

A personality of impressive value

A man with resolute virtues

A man with a walk that brings shame

To the walk of John Wayne

A man in all senses rational

Logical, humble and intelligent

Words that are rich; voice that’s resonant

The man’s capable of putting a halt to any argument

The man’s eyes are full of love

Calmer than a sea; peaceful than a dove

The man’s smile is full and wide

But the man’s biggest pride

Is his impressive beard

A beard money can’t buy

It boasts experience and a character of high

A true gentleman today

A true gentleman tomorrow

May his mighty soul never falter

I’m proud to have this affable man as my father!

Happy 57th, dad!
