The Greatest Father - Poem by shonda barnes

When A man becomes A dad the feelings of fear, and happiness begin to overwhelm him.He's there to catch his baby when he falls.He's there to check for the boogie man under the bed, and in the closet.Then reads him bedtime stories, and reassures his child there are no worries.On his babie's first day of school he drops him off with A smile.He goes back to his car, and cries for awhile.As time goes by his little guy grows up.He has his basketball game, and you can bet his dad stood proud cheering him on all the way.Though it feel's as if it were yesterday.That he held his baby in his arms.Looked up to god, and prayed'Please lord don't let me be A failure.Let me be the greatest father as you are to me.'
