I'm Your Father And I'm Your Friend


I stay awake at night with bags under my eyes
Just to change your nappy and bottle feed you when you cry
Telling your mommy, don't worry go to sleep, I got this coz you my child
I reminice apon your arrival, trembling thoughts confused emotions dawned my stanurm
Journey transition moving from a boy to man
Its all been worth it, coz you the core ingredient to a master plan
I remember those tiny fingers and toes
You never cried, you were the perfect poetic show
I can't wait to teach you how to ride your first bicycle
And when you fall and become happy because I'm taking you to get your first stiches
Whilst your mom being angry at me for losing site of you, thats a perfect family picture
Or when you crush over your first teacher
I can't wait when you have your first girlfriend and we nagging you to meet her
And you treat her like a queen as you do your mom, remembering my words, ' all women are fragile creatures'
Respect and love her and she will turn you into a better man and a love believer
Kakanyo-Entle ' A Beautiful Thought'
Because having you has never felt wrong
Though you my son, I wish to grow up to be everything you are
That one special being amongst all, like the galaxy and a shooting star
I had a father in my mom
Because of her love and teachings, I'll forever love my son
You complete me like a thousand piece puzzle
What starts with I and ends with YOU? , I don't know but I LOVE YOU, that's a personified riddle
I'm your father and you are my son
In my world you'll always be number one

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
