Seven years old
My world was crashing.
You stole my mom,
Then locked me in this strange new place.
I didn’t quite understand yet,
but your intentions were good.

You see,
I never had a man to look up to,
How was I supposed to know?
You just wanted to be a role model.

I used to say “I hate you” ,
But now I have nothing but thanks.
He left
he never came back.
But here you are,
You always have my back.
Influencing me to do my best,
And pushing me to my limits.
Not only are you an amazing Dad,
But you’re my hero.
