Father and Child Poems

Father and Child Poems

Many men will agree that being a father is the most rewarding relationship that they have. Children begin by loving their fathers unconditionally. It is a clean slate. There is nothing the father has to do to earn his child's love. The difficult part is not losing it. As the child goes out into the world, he will see all kinds of men whom he will look to as models as well. It is crucial that his father stay active in his life and help him make intelligent decisions. A boy without a father will look elsewhere to fill his father's shoes.

Daddy! I Need You, Hidden



Hidden

I've seen a glimpse of a little girl, the one who plays inside.

With a teardrop in my eye
