This poem goes across 3 pages in this book. It is such a neat poem.
When I heard the news of you, I did the thing most Daddies do.
I opened up my heart so wide, For you to have a place inside.
As each day passed, I’d think of you, I’d watch you grow, I was expecting too!
I tried to imagine the person you’d be. Would you look or act like me?
I thought of the things that we would do, The times we’d share, just us two.
I would give you piggyback rides, push your swing and watch you slide.
I would teach you how to ride a bike, Catch your first ball and throw your first strike…
I would hold your hand in mine, be your protector, strong yet kind.
I would be your hero and friend, Give love and advice on which you’d depend.
I will always remember the day you were born, I cradled a miracle, small and warm.
What words I had were scarce and few, A tear and a smile were the best I could do.
Life gave me a moment, precious and rare, bursting with pride, excitement and care.
I promised you then, all that I had…See you were my child and I was your DAD!
