What a man should believe

This is for my Grampa, John Vernon Ward. He passed away unexpectedly on May 13th, 2009. I’ll always regret the time I missed with him, but I’ll be eternally grateful for the example he was to me of what a man can and should be. He touched more lives than I can even imagine possible, and he’s always been my best example and inspiration among my family. I love you, Grampa. You’re my hero, and you always were.

What A Man Should Believe

What a man should believe
You taught me by your way
How you lived and carried on
Through each and every day

You taught me to believe
That people are usually good
And reaching out in friendship
Is the way I always should

You showed in all your action
That virtue and honor define a man
And you carried them as your character
In ways you taught me to understand

You showed me how your courage
Was at the forefront of your creed
And I’m inspired by the way you faced
Every adversity and need

But amongst these many virtues
One stands so far above
And I will never, ever forget
The warmth and power of your love

I’ll always love you, Grampa
The best parts of me came from you
You taught me everything worth believing
And every word, I know, is true.
