I was listening to a song called “Live like you are loved” by Mark Schultz. ( he has a very sweet voice by the way) It’s a song about a daddy releasing his eighteen year old girl to spread out her wings and fly in this world. I remembered the once beautiful poem I posted called, “Father to Daughter”( Click to read it). I wanted to write something on fathers releasing their daughters to live on their own, and find their way in this world, When I came across this poem, written by my daddy. I just edited it. Read on…
I am a father,
I am the protector,
The foundation for my family!
I provide a roof above my family’s head,
And not just a roof,
A decent one,
In that case!
I am the role model to my children,
They look up to me,
To lead by example I must,
Being the one to guide,
To lead them through life’s journey.
I am to chart the way,
In times of darkness,
And through life’s storms!
For I am the northern star,
To lead them to their destinations!
I must show love and compassion,
Empathy in difficult times,
To discipline is no option,
Of course I must!
I must remain relentless,
Till they cross the bridge,
To their destined,
This is who I am,
