Dennis Eugene Kyte

He wasn’t a hero,

Known by the world.
But a hero he was,
To his little girl.

My daddy was wise,
He knew all things.
And better than Santa,
With the gifts he’d bring.

I knew his voice,
Before I could speak.
And loved it when,
He would sing me to sleep.

He changed my diapers,
And sat up all night.
When my body was weak
And I’d put up a fight.

He taught me life’s lessons,
Of right from wrong.
And instilled in me values,
That I would be strong.

And so through the years,
Like a hero he stood.
Working to give,
All that he could.

His presence was important,
And we loved to see him smile.
For no one in the world,
Could imitate his style.

And so Dear Dad,
My best memory to recall.
Is the gift of your presence,
The greatest gift of all
