Velvet & Stone

As a child, Daddy’s hands reminded me of both velvet & stone…

They were gentle & comforting when I needed them to be 

but they could be hard on me when I’d done wrong

His balance of firm discipline and Love, tenderness and tough

Helped to guide my way, the way that he raised me

Has really shaped in many ways who I am today
