Daddy - Poem by Kenneth J Thompson

Any man can father a child
For it takes but a short while
But to be a daddy takes much more
Especially to love a child that’s not yours
A child that’s here without a notion
Of what has happened and why’s there commotion
A child that’s here not from your seed
But yet and still you took no heed
To raise me up as one of your own
Making your heart my place of home

Now there were times I wanted to know
Why the biological never showed
But I got much love and that’d be all I’d need
Because the actions you took made me your seed
For you stepped in and took control
Unlike him you were bold
For he stepped in and right back out
In my mind leaving wonder and doubt
Why would someone show no tact?
For an innocent child felt the impact
But true love I have never lacked

Now the time for proclamation
I find myself in a similar situation
It hurt me much the way he came
But none-the-less I’ll love him the same
I hope to be at least half of you
To love that child and render him due
All that I’ve truly been given
For he is a precious gift from heaven
Elijah Thompson before I go
There is something you must know
You are my daddy and I’ll always love you so
