Poem: A Loving Dad
the joys of being a child
having no worries,
life seemed so simple.
The pictures in my mind playing memories of a wonderful childhood,
with you taking time to teach me how to play,
how to enjoy life,
how to have manners,
and to know the value of a dollar.
My childhood days full of laughter
with plenty of time to enjoy being a kid,
not having to worry if I had food to eat
or clothes to wear
or where I would sleep.
Today, children grow up too fast
not knowing this kind of love,
for families seem too busy
or down on their luck,
not taking time to share quality moments.
I am fortunate I had a Dad like you
guiding me when I was young,
someone to be proud of who is still with me today
reaching out his helping hand guiding me along life’s way,
a blessing I will always count,
To have a loving Dad.
