From Daddy - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

I look forward to you living with me
I’m excited, scared and eager,
I love you
I just hope that’s enough
I hope I can be the father I want you to have,
the example you need.
I hope something doesn’t change
and you can’t live with me.
I’m beginning to get my hopes up
which I shouldn’t,
not till I’m certain
I love you Ethan,
either way
I will love you
the best I can.

    I really like this Jon. Very touching. It makes me think of my brother with his oldest son...he doesn't live with him and he can't see him as much as he'd like but he loves him very much. You've really expressed your love here. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply
