"A Father's Role" A father's role should be that of a guide Who points out the pitfalls of life. He walks with his children through thick and through thin, And leads them through trouble and strife. He gives them the tools they'll need to survive In a world fraught with dangers unknown; A "Rock of Gibralter," a mentor, a friend Who's there, by their side, till they're grown. A father's role is to teach and instruct In the techniques of riding a bike; But compared to the time when they're driving his car Those instructions will seem rather trite. A father's role when he's raising a son Is to be like a friend all his life; But his role for a daughter is often quite sad For he gives her to be someone's wife.
