A Step-Dad - Poem by Lacey UnKnown

I can’t even count
The things you’ve done for me
I can’t begin to list
Everything you’ve helped me through
You’re the only dad I’ve ever known
Since my father can’t be a man
You stepped in when we needed you most
You picked up the pieces
And fixed four shattered lives
And through the years
Gave us four brand new lives
You stuck with me
Through my hatred
Of you, of me, of the world
You always encouraged me
And told me I could do better
I never believed you
Until it happened
I never thought a step-dad
Could become such an influence
I never knew that a step-dad
Could be such a hero
I never guessed that my step-dad
Could become my dad

For Dad

    Beautifully written, I feel the same way about my own step father. I have allways let everyone know that he was who was there for me. (Report) Reply
