I WANT FOR NOTHING MORE THAN TO HAVE YOU WITH ARMS OUT STRETCHED I WELCOME YOU WILL YOU HAVE ME

I WON’T PRETEND THAT I AM EVERYTHING YOU’LL NEED BUT I WILL TRY EVERYDAY TO BE ALL I AM

MY SHOULDERS MAY NOT BE WIDE ENOUGH TO CARRY ALL THE BURDENS YOU HAVE BUT THEY ARE STRONG ENOUGH FOR YOU TO LEAN ON

CAN I BE YOUR BEACON WHEN SEAS GET ROUGH MY LIGHT IS UNIQUE MY LIGHT IS SAFE MY LIGHT IS WARM IT CAN GUIDE YOU LET IT SHOW YOU

I WILL GET TIRED AT TIMES BUT NEVER TO TIRED TO STOP HOLDING YOU AND LOVING YOU AND BRINGING JOY WILL YOU LET ME BRING YOU JOY

I CAN’T STOP TEARS BUT I CAN DRY THEM AND DELIVER COMFORT

WHEN YOU GET TRAVEL WARY I CAN BE SOLID GROUND UNDER FEET I CAN BE YOUR HOUSE YOU CAN REST HERE

CAN I BE THE MAN

I WOULD WALK TO THE MOON IF IT MEANT YOU WOULD BE SATISFIED THEN TURN AROUND AND WALK BACK TO KEEP YOU THAT WAY

I’M NOT SHINY BUT I AM A ROCK A STABLE PLACE A PILLAR A POST

WOULD YOU LET ME TRY

ALL THAT I AM TRYING TO CONVEY TO YOU RIGHT HERE IS I AM BUT ME NOT COMPLETE BUT FINISHED AND I WANT YOU

Fatherhood never known

To see me outside me has been a pursuit of the “man” that encases this being.

To feel the hands that were like the hands this “man” once had is a daft longing that has made this “mans” life.

To hear the voice that this “man” used to praise nature and grandmother and tried to sing that beautiful song that could never be forgotten was this “mans” quest.

To smell the flesh as my flesh is brand new is this “mans” heartbeat.

To walk along side myself as I try talk walk beside me, I give my sanity and the very life giving blood that will never know how to walk beside me.

I hear me as me cry’s out in the looking for me and to know that I am not far away.

I will never be far away.

To be the strong hand in my life when life’s lessons are not learned and heeded, will be my task and I take that task with forethought and acknowledgement.

To send that little piece of me off when day breaks and hoping the Most High sees fit to bring that little piece of me back to me is what I will do.

To see sights from new eyes as my eyes have grown tried, makes the very light new again.

To feel the weight of me on my shoulders means nothing as I would take on the weight of the world, so that me can stand tall and beam reassured that we stand tall.

Wipe away tears that will surely come because this world is made out of such is what my hands were made for.

To teach me that we come from greatness and never let that be forgotten is my charge.

To be a light in the night that me can always see as ships have and rocks missed is what I was born into.

To advise and turn loose and hope that it was true is me.

To watch me grow to stand on my own to reach out and know that I am not alone, to know that stars shine and the moon is hung is for me to know that I am not alone.

To wonder what is out there and when will we go back is what I hand to you.

To never stop looking up, to never stop looking up, to never stop looking up, to never stop looking up, to never stop looking up is what you must do.

Know that this person the older you has never stopped looking up, has never stopped looking up, has never stopped looking up, has never stop looking up and will never stop looking to you to carry on.

When we reach for each other with knowing that our reach is not in vein, that is when I know I have become a father and the child has become mine.
