Favorite Quote:
It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere would much rather you not be doing it.
-Terry Pratchett

The strongest man I know is not who you’d expect

He doesn’t fight off monsters, he doesn't have great Pecs.

He doesn't use a sword and shield to defend and to protect.

Instead, he sits down in a chair

And runs a hand through his hair.

He’d read to me every night

Illuminated by the bedside light

His eyes full of love overflowing

Leaving my soul a’ glowing.

He doesn't try to be nice or kind.

He just is, even if he’s in a bind.

The man I speak of, here tonight.

Is the man that brought me to the plight

Of life
