what would we do without dads

( simplistic poem knocked together for my she-nipper to read in class-re tomorrow )


Fathers who cried with joy seeing us come into the world

Fathers who helped our new lives unfurl

Fathers who nursed us and taught us to potty

Fathers who wiped away green nose bubbles and dripping candles drippingly snotty

Fathers who trained us to bike ride and ran alongside

Fathers who hugged us when we fell off and cried

Fathers who were our story-tellers  or clowns playing the fool

Fathers who fibbed saying our teen dress sense was cool!!

Fathers who had shoulders we could lean on and ears for our woes

Fathers who tried so hard to go with our flows

Fathers who were our money lenders, taxi drivers, later on, our cars mechanics

Fathers who calmed our silly angst and silly love panics

Fathers who did our homework while we watched TV

Fathers who saw us through college and Uni and emerge triumphantly

Fathers who phoned us at Uni at the end of each day

Fathers who paid BT bills as we face booked, sent texts and twittered away

Fathers who were part of our wedding plans

Fathers who soppily shed tears as we drove off from the church pulling a long line of cans

Fathers who continued to care

Fathers who for us were ALWAYS there

Fathers who did all this-stayed steadfast and true

and if he values his life he had better mention that Mum did half of this too!
