Daddy

What makes you their father other than blood?
What makes them call you Daddy?
Listening to all the stories that rush out of them
Watching with pride as they show their latest move
Providing all the necessities of this life
The guiding hand that you use to suggest the way
The freedom you give them to follow it themselves
The time you don’t have that you give them anyway
The tickling and teasing and laughter you inspire
The protection and safety that your arms offer
And the sheer, naked love that shines from your face
