Happy Fathers Day
He starts as just that, a he.
Just a random face in the crowd.
As he grows up he falls in love,
makes choices, sets examples,
influences many people who are now greater than they were.
He starts out as a husband.
Loving her with all he has.
Comforting her, standing up for her,
Sheltering her, providing for her and +1 on the way.
Preparing the room for their child coming into the world.
He, the one that was just a random face in the crowd,
Who use to have just one name,
Now has multiple different names.
Father, Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Papa, and many more to come.
He is now all of that to a new he.
A new random face in the crowd.
