Being a Dad

Being a dad, like a mom, sometimes can be a chore.
Often there are circumstances that he cannot ignore.
Dadhood is a calling and it is not always by choice.
When you find yourself in a dad moment, just rejoice.
You see, life is too short not to give your kids your best.
Dads around the world know exactly what I suggest.
Look in their eyes and you will see the hope of our future.
Whether you're single or married, your love is a suture.
Spending time with your children will help them grow.
But don’t forget your own Dad's land while you sow.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
