I Am Your Dad

Submitted By: TammyB

When I heard the news of you,
I did the things that most Daddies do.
I opened up my heart so wide,
For you to have a place inside.

I tried to imagine the person you'd be,
would you look or act like me?
I thought of the things we would do,
The times we'd share, just us two.

I would hold your hand in mine,
be your protector, strong yet kind.
I would be your hero and friend,
give advice on which you'd depend.

I remember the day you were born,
I cradled a miracle, small and warm.
What words I had were scarce and few,
A tear was the best that I could do.

Life gave me a moment so rare,
Bursting with pride, love and care.
I promised you then all that I had,
See you are my child, I am your Dad.
