Father’s day

Proud do be a dad

The best I can be

Two little children

Love when they’re happy

They make me smile

With a laugh each time

They drive me crazy

What mischief this time

I’m not perfect no

So the rumour goes

I do what I can

And stick to the plan

Two things done correct

Our kids learn respect

A reward, just so pure

I’m happy evermore


Happy father’s day

I’m your daddy

I’ve had the text from your mum

In 2 hours ends the fun

I’m doing the washing up

Thinking surely too much

Starting to regret and punish myself

I imagine it’s not good for my health

You’ve been with us for 12 days

And your going through a phase

It seems you’ve been punishing us

Fits, tantrums, sulks and stuff

What ever your 6 year old mind can find

What are you going to do this time?

It’s been so difficult looking after you

Not always knowing what to do.

With the baby here it’s been a big change

And for you it has to be a little bit strange

We talk to you often, try to explain

You rolling your eyes, us explaining in vein

I want us to get along, all together

But you change your mind just like the weather

I ask myself what can I do?

What is needed to help you?

Although it’s difficult and you can make me sad.

I’ll always love you cause I’ll always be your dad.
