To be a Daddy
Being a Father is simple and every man can be that but it takes much more to be a DADDY...
To be a Daddy requires patience
It requires support
It requires trading places
It is said that what a man can do
A woman can do
Then i have carefully made it clear
That what a woman can do
A man can do better
I don't know how i learned it
I never knew this part of me
But he brought it out
My son, the light of my life
All i ever wanted was to be a good man
To be a supportive Father
A protective Daddy
But to bath him
This i never imagined
But when it was time
We traded places
Extra ordinary things
Makes a Daddy
Do not jump into the water if you cannot swim, yes it is true that a Daddy doesn't feel a baby growing inside him but a daddy is always prepared to trade places to show love and appreciation and that is what i am doing right now,although it seem hard.However, it is nothing but a challenge i won.
My Late Dad, thought me many things but what he did not teach me before his departure was how to live, he lived a short while and i watched.
How good a Dad was my own DADDY, he provided everything and the protection i needed was guaranteed but at his passing, i realized that all passed away with him therefore, i have decided to be the best for my son and to do that, i have trade place.
Being a Daddy to me is like shaving, believe me, no matter how good you do it today, right now, you will still do it again tomorrow so all i am doing is to be the best for my son, who have shown me a part of me i never knew.
Chinedum, 'Reflection on my life', i realized that the thirteen years with grandpa was short, i never had the chance to grab it although i bonded with him but then, he left.
As of me and you, i will always trade place to give you all i did not get from him because there is nothing as strong as a father's protection.
Nothing gives me joy than bathing you,feeling your slippery body and guarding you not to fall off my hand,believe me, i learned so many ways to do it but honestly, sitting in the barf while i wash your body is the best.
I love you son.
