 Elsie`s Poetry


This was written from a father`s perspective


Oh look at you just lying there
So innocent without a care,
You fill my heart with so much pride
My love for you I cannot hide.

You look so happy and content
The perfect picture you present,
Alas this phase will just not last
For time passes so very fast.

I think I am in for a nice surprise
I`ll now see the world thru` your eyes,
Things will seem all shiny and new
This will be my lesson from you.

While you are little I am your Dad
I will cheer you up when you are sad,
I`ll pick you up should you ever fall
All this I`ll do while you are small.

From baby, to boy, to man you`ll grow
Never ending love on you I`ll bestow,
I`m still your Dad but also your friend
Knowing on me you can always depend.

There  are many things I want to teach
So your full potential you can reach,
For you`re the future of the human race
And in this world you will take your place.
