You’re My Hero by Theresa James

What do you think?

I had this played at my father’s funeral. It was a hard road for him when he became bedridden with Parkinson and a heart conditon along with kidney failure but he never complained and remained cheery to the end. All he wanted was to die at home and I am so grateful we were able to do this for him. He was 90 and had witnessed many things over his life but always remained true to his beliefs and his family. He was my Hero and I miss him so much!


I would ride on your shoulders
And look out on the world
Pretending I was big and tall like you
When you were there to hold me
I never was afraid
You made me feel there’s nothing I can’t do

If I’d spread my wings to fly
When I was very small
I knew that you’d be standing by
To catch me if I fall

You’re my hero
Chasing the monsters from my room
Going on trips around the moon
The one who’s always been there faithfully
You’re my hero
And ’cause you’re my Dad…
I’m twice as blessed and lucky to be me


As I kept on growing
We often disagreed
But you let me find myself in my own way
And it’s funny, how just lately
I’ve come to recognize
How wise you are becoming every day
There’s so much you’ve given me
I hope I’ve made you proud
You’re everything a Dad should be
And it’s time to tell you now

You’re my hero
You didn’t have to say a word
Your love was the message that I heard
Inspiring me to be all I can be
You’re my hero
And ’cause you’re my Dad…
I’m twice as blessed and lucky to be me
