What Is It Like To Have A Dad?

One comment

I’ve always wondered what it’s like

To have a father tuck you in at night

Safe and sound,

He doesn’t ask

For things only a man in your bed

At 4 am after too much rum and coke

Would take from you.

A father to share hopes and dreams with,

To ask advice about boys and college,

To walk you down the aisle and give you away,

Because as a newborn you belonged to him.

I’ve always wondered what it’s like,

To have a father love you before a man could claim you as his own.

A father who loved you as a child, who taught you and worried about you as you fell in love.

I’ve always wondered what it’s like

To say ‘daddy’ and feel the truth of that word.

For him to say, “You will always be my little girl”.

I’ve always wondered what it’s like,

To feel the weight of the world fade as I rest in the safety of my father’s arms.

I’ve always wondered what it’s like, to have a dad.
