Hero’s

When I was a young lad I had a Hero or two…
From the Lone Ranger to Batman, and my Grand Father Angelo, to name a few.

And as I grew older most of them faded away.
Except for Angelo, I still look at his picture, almost everyday.

He didn’t have a cape, but sometimes he wore a hat.
He didn’t ride a horse, or dress up like a bat.

He did work two jobs just so we’d get by.
I always remember him singing.
I never saw him cry.

He was a strong man with bright blue eyes.
Who raised me like a son, no one could deign.

I seldom remember him angry.
And he never was mean.
And when I was small he’d call me his little jellybean.

Some days we would go watch the planes take off.
Those memories I still keep.

We’d sit & eat pepperoni & bread, on his old Willy’s jeep.

I would make him Father’s Day cards with glue and sparkles that we had in jars.

And it would get all over him those red & blue stars.

But he never complained no matter how much they would show.
He said, “Now I can take them wherever I go”

Some days I really miss him.
When I wonder what to do.

And I’d love to hear or see him for just a moment or two.

So when I pray to my Heavenly Father above.
I sometimes thank HIM for Angelo’s
Patience, teaching & love…

Happy Father’s Day
"Daddy"
