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.
