The role of a father is to lend that support and step up to the plate

A Father

Who in your childish eyes seem so fortified like a fort?
This person seem to be able to do much with little effort
Standing below those knees looking up as this tower
How there is that beaming of pride knowing that it’s your father

With one swoop of the hand you are lifted high in the air
There is so much joy as that delight bring to the eyes a tear
This happy sound so filled up the areas in the surroundings
How often there is that wish that this will having no ending

How of in admiration in watching there is the feeling to emulate
Nobody no matter who can change that sort of mind state
How often there is the attraction like a power of a magnet
To want to follow in some way in your daddy’s footsteps

And father it is certainly you great and mature duty
To step up to the plate and with pride shoulder that responsibility
Don’t believe that it is your bounding duty just to populate
And then depart when you have your DNA donate

That is one part of the process but there are others to address
To be there providing that support when there is stress
Therefore in unison with the mother and of course companion
You have to nurture and steer that little one through life’s ocean

So as we approach another day for the dad be glad
That in your life about the wonderful opportunity you had
You may not always be right but can take some form of delight
That as a father you stuck to your task, no matter how painful was the bite


Bond, Steer, Support
