I love my dad very much. I wrote this poem thinking what he would say to me if he were to write a poem
From the day you were born,
You put a smile on my face.
I loved you.
You looked so much like your mom,
And your innocence,
Melted my heart away.
I took you in my arms,
And kissed you on the forehead.
What a gift from on high!
I walked with you when you took your first step,
I picked you up when you fell,
I encouraged you on.
I clapped when you spoke your first word,
I took you to school,
I held your hand as you wrote your first character,
And smiled when you did,
I still smiled when you drew the funniest picture,
And I still loved you.
When you fell sick,
I knelt by your side,
And prayed for you.
I helped you ride your first bicycle,
And bought you a teddy bear when you did finally learn.
You became a teen,
I took you out,
Long before your puppy love did,
I loved you still,
And I told you so,
Long before he did.
I was there to comfort you,
To give you an assuring hug,
On your very first break up.
Look at you now,
The only difference between you and Wife is age,
I am soon walking you down the aisle,
I will entrust you to him,
And I hope and pray,
He will love you,
All his days,
And treat you right.
I got to let go,
And it hurts so bad,
Because I still love you,
Ciao, Zaijian, Bon Voyage, Goodbye.
Trust me I can really feel this poem.
