Jun 17, 2020| Rhyme Verses Reason :: Sonnet :: Father’s Week

From The Start

Dedicated: to the single Dads, Daddies, Fathers on this special week.

From the moment I was able to walk,
You held my hand without delay.
Counted the days until I could talk
And cradled me arm-wise all the way.

From Pre-K to college I was your Princess,
No Queen could come between us.
You nurtured and taught me what was best,
Never were our lives superfluous.

Now and here, again, you hold my hand.
As I walk down the aisle in lace and white,
I kiss your cheek and come to stand
By the one I’ve chosen for now and life.

He’s first in our home, but second in my heart
Because number one was you, Daddy, right from the start.
