Raising kids is the toughest job,
especially without the ties of the umbilical cord.
Patiently and carefully a father learns his duties,
Starts with a diaper change to midnight soothing, playtime and school.
Moments turn to days as helping with homework,
going to games, deciding right-wrong takes a toll.
Endless driving lessons, impeccable taste of music,
countless arguments and family times seem like days of yester years.
Nothing beats the togetherness shared,a bond beyond the cord so rare,
That each woman tries finding a partner reflecting those ideal qualities as her Papa.
Sad it is as we leave for creating new homes,
but the lessons you taught will never be less than gold.
I cherish you and treasure you my dad!
I find it funny some days as a kid, of you my mentor/ friend i was scared.
