If all I can do to honor a friend is to share a memory that I've found great in him, then in both our power let me.
Dave Goodall lives!

A Father that Wasn't Mine

I’ve spent quite some time looking for those
Set of profound words to say, that when found
Could never even begin to justify your character
I can only wish that I had thanked you more
Often, gotten out of my way to tell you how much
I have enjoyed your company and laughter

A big man with a bigger heart
Working day and night to benefit others
In our lives you play an even bigger part
That far surpasses the passing of our fathers
In case you’re wondering,
Your stories have never bored me
And your advice were never flat and lame
In many cases I have to agree, and admit
That I have often felt the same

To us children, you are more than the Nike man
With the white poodle, the great white shirts
And the white matching van
You are our beloved Dave
Whose visits we always look forward to

‘Cause the Big Friendly Giant has got nothing on you

  Ughhh, what can I say? This piece is genius. Why haven't I read this before? and why didn't we let him read this?? Suven, you need to print this out and put it on frame for Dave.
I love it.
At first I thought you were talking about someone else, but then it hit me when you wrote,
"To us children, you are more than the Nike man
With the white poodle, the great white shirts
And the white matching van

‘Cause the Big Friendly Giant has got nothing on you"

  That is pretty sweet. I am betting the person you are refering to (if you are refering to anyone) is very touched and appreciates it greatly. I dunno what bignfineq is smoking, but this is hardly a 'crying poem'. Or maybe my heart is just dead... Who knows... Now, end of compliments! To the help we go!
Yes, you had some awesome rhyming in there. No, it was not everywhere, but it wasn't needed too much in this poem. You could still have used about 3 more rhyming pairs, though. Or maybe there were more rhymes, but they didn't rhyme.
Lastly, word choice. Some of it, most of the second stanza, is over the top. Other parts, about 1 part of the second stanza, was... Par. In a poem like this, the word 'lame' might be better off something else. Lame is like... Not... Complementary to the appreciativeness of this poem.
All in all, a very good poem.

  This was a beautiful dedication to a 'father' figure and mentor who appears to have affected your life (and other lives) more than he could have imagined. The world is full of indifferent instructors that recite endless litanies of useless facts to young men and women, but it has so few that take a moment to mold a life and shape a destiny. This was a very heartfelt piece that I'm sure would make its subject proud. Nicely done. Take care. Bill.
