Father you are, not for the glory nor the hype.
Father you are, caring for these children with all your might.
Father you are, checking in every moment you can.
Father you are, some wouldn’t even begin to understand.
Guiding him in every way you can.
Protecting her with your very large hands.
Playtime feels like all the time.
This life is something else, what’s the best word? Sublime!
Though I often get mad at the things you do not do.
I need to praise you for all that you do.
Social media daddy you are not,
Giver of time, love and affection – I have never forgot.
Quite caring, completely separate from the lot.
I salute you father, you’re amazing lest you forgot!
A pair of thirties + a fifteen 🙂
