A Daddy’s Care

Your devotion’s been unstinting

Your adoration endless

Your commitment never wavered

Your hard work’s been relentless.


Borne out of love, a promise

Exceeded in its honouring

A decision made, so selfless

A generous, heartfelt offering.


Not once could you envisage

The duties now expected

And the overwhelming tasks

That you quickly had perfected.


Your days have been exhausting

And your nights full of waking

Caring, soothing, tending,

Til the dawn’s started breaking.


Now your shift’s almost ended

And you’ve looked back and smiled

At the outcome of your efforts

A well-loved, happy child.


Your work’s not been easy

It’s the hardest job you’ve had

But your daughter and I thank you

For being such an amazing dad. 

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

  12. Absolutely beautiful-made me think of my own husband. He truly is a natural, and walked into the role of ‘Daddy’ with such elegance, it almost brings a tear to my eye.

    This is such a wonderful tribute to your children’s father-isn’t it something to watch them with our tiny little humans? Thanks for sharing! ❤ #KCACOLS
