Most Fathers

Published: January 2009

Most fathers recall when their children are born
that instant bond that could never be torn.

Most fathers watch as their children grow
and develop a pride no other would know.

Most fathers give advice and gently guide,
helping their kids to take things in stride.

Most fathers earn the title of dad,
by cherishing small things, even the bad.

Most fathers strive to do their best,
thinking how much they have been blessed.

Most fathers do drink, but not to excess,
Most fathers are different from you, I guess.

My son became a father on 9-9-09 and he has neglected his son because he is always at the bar. He even let him move to Michigan with his mother because he didn't want to take care of him or provide for him. It has made our family so sad. He was a good person before joining a motorcycle group and getting into his addictions. We just want him back and want him to be a good father to his gorgeous and healthy son.
