Cyndi Lauper ~*~ True_Colors

For Papa

His words glowed with love saying what he didn't say,
"I will strive to be like him in what I do each day."
In my time I have met good men, honest and true.
Some brave and smart, but those admired were few.

Some I thought highly of, but would never strive to be
Some having met, I hope not again to see.
As I listened to him speak so gently of his dad,
I could see and feel the bond of love he had.

I understand, for some of my proudest times have been
When other say of me "you seem so much like him."
There is no greater tribute to any father than
That he is the measure for his children of a man.
