A Father Is A Father - Poem by alice spakrs

A father is a father.
But it takes a man to be a dad.
You lost that title when you left mom and I.
A dad is man that I can turn to when I need someone.
His son first hero and a daughters first love.
Any boy can be a father.
But to take responsibility and raise that child,
That's what makes a father a dad.
A father is a father.
A boy is a boy.
But a father can be a dad.
All he has to do is become a man.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

To my daddy Jesse. I love you dad, even though you're my step-dad I'm glad you raised me.
