A Father That You Could Be Proud Of

To my future kid,

I was thinking about you

When I tried to become better.

You were motivation;

You and your mother,

Who is also

In the future.

I haven’t met either of you, yet,

But I’d like to be the man

That could bag someone like your mom;

And I want to be

The type of father

That you could be proud of.

I want to be a dad that tries at life.

You need a role model,

And I want to show you that so much is possible in life

I need to live it,

And before you get here,

I need to use that free-time

To build a life for you.

All of these words

Are for you two,

And I know

That they aren’t


They aren’t

Enough . . .

But, some day,

You can come here

And read what your father was about.

Even before you were born,

He was about you;

You, and your sister,


Your mother

And grandkids.

You are all already a part of me.

I can’t wait to meet you someday.

Whenever I feel like giving up,

I just imagine

What your face would look like.
