And I watched through the centuries as men
protected their young, their women, their homes.
And I watched as men built kingdoms, roads and empires.
And I watched as men walked the moon, save the sick, put food on the table.
And I watched in awe as great men worked tirelessly,
To save the world.
Men of timber and calibre, men who love with simplicity.
Men who shoulder responsibilities without squirming.
Men with the courage of lions who turned away from no foes.
And I watched my dad, husband, sons, brothers, relatives, friends
Try to live their footprints in the sands of time.
I love men.
I married one, a daughter to one, a mother to two.
Men are great, and the few and rotten who rape women,
who kill and plunder are not MEN.
They are NOTHING!
I want to pay tribute to great men, to my father, Peter Nelson, you are adored in my eyes, to the man who married me, Kay, I love you with all my heart, you complete me, to great men I have met on my blogging journey, they are many and I hold you all in the highest esteem! To my girlfriends and sisters, (don’t be jealous, I love you, you know that!)
God bless you all!!
