Be a Daddy To You


A poem from the novel
"The Essence of Poetry II:Gerald's Sophomore Yet Grown Poetrybook"
Written by: Gerald L. Ingraham

-------------------------------------

I already regret not being there,
I was not there when you were born;
I believe it was neither just nor fair,
But there is no need to feel torn.

The important thing is that I am here,
And never shall part separate ways;
I say right now that my greatest fear
Is losing you after all our happy days.

To be a daddy to you
Is all that I wanted to be;
Let me be a daddy to you,
As I take care of us three;
So I shall be a daddy to you,
And how true that we shall see.

Now, I know we have recently met,
But still I want to be there for you;
My schedules for you have been set,
And I see so many things we can do.

Let me make up my every wrong,
It is never too later for a change;
Hold my hand with a force so strong,
As you see anything can be arranged.

To be a daddy to you
Is all that I wanted to be;
Let me be a daddy to you,
As I take care of us three;
So I shall be a daddy to you,
And how true that we shall see.

Never re-fall, Jaden,
The stepchild of my prayer and dreams;
Always recall, Jaden,
I am still here as hard as this life seems.

...and most of all, Jaden, I love you.
