The Poet K – “What About A Dad?”

I asked the Little One – What about a Dad?

The Little One answered – He gave me all he had!

He showed me to keep on going when things were getting bad

He showed me to make choices, to subtract and yet to add

He showed me how to shed a tear when things were really sad

He showed me how to keep my head when I was feeling mad

He showed me how to work together, said not to be a cad

He showed me how to stand alone, a better path to pad

He showed me what was solid and what was just a fad

He showed me that honest work earns the stuff that must be had

He showed me what was family, equal mom and dad

He showed me how to like myself, and for that I’m really glad

I asked the Little One – What about a Dad?

The Little One answered – He gave me all he had!

He could not give me everything; He just gave me all he had!
