Father of children

Father of children… by: Steve Hudson Helpless and frail you came to me, In wonder and curiosity you gazed, The beginning of a relationship forged in blood, The created becoming creator, a gift from The Father to another, I am afraid because I feel the weight of responsibility Upon my shoulders. Precious life entrusted to me, trusting me, You wrapped your fingers around mine Like you wrapped your heart around mine, I see reflections of me in your gleaming eyes, Like reflections of me in waters disturbed. You have colored my life with the fragrance of joy, Yes, stained the fabric of my very being with tears And blood, spilt over a lifetime of failures and success. Laughter you bring, character you exude, Watching you grow, learning together, and sharing our lives Has been an honor my dear ones.
