Hearts are won each night with story,
Children sprawled across the stage,
Mystery, wonder, fear and glory
Found at tender age.
A father's time, his words, his touch
with fiction, prose, and song
Hearts won each night with such
Lessons learned as Truth and right and wrong.
A battle for my heart is fought
Each night with lessons taught
And reprieve found in a Fathers grace
For my children's lives and mine.
Hearts are won each night with story
Tender love displayed.
Thank you Lord for Your gift,
A father who gives You glory.
