My shadow and my notebook

Updated on September 23, 2013

They thought we couldn't do it

That it would be to hard

The looks and all those whispers

From Mums in the school yard

But love has made it easy

Our life is full of fun

Nature made me your Daddy

Though fate made me your Mum

It's you that made it simple

With this path that we've been delt

As my joy is to watch you grow

And you always want to help

Your my shadow and my notebook

Daddy I need some new socks

We survive through love and teamwork

Together .....................solid as a rock

      You and your baby sound an awesome team, and your pride and love shine through so clearly in your writing.

      It is great to read and you are so clearly, a brilliant dad.

      Beautiful poem and very intense. Heartening to see the relationship you share with Savannah. Parenting is not the easiest thing to do and to bring up a child being both mum and dad, the way you are, is commendable. The love that you share hasn't gone unnoticed. I wish the two of you all the happiness in the world, together.
