    Fathers what does your son mean to u?

    What is this?
    How could this be?

    Did I do this?
    How could this spawn from me?

    So So tiny
    So So frail

    A copy of myself
    this baby I cant fail.

    My son, My u came soo soon from your mothers womb
    This is only May 21st
    You were scheduled for the month after June.

    My son my life is what I pledge to you
    I am humbled by your existancea feeling very new.
    As I held you for the first time u were just about the size of my palm
    I was affraid to even hold you in my arm.
    Permature and with jaundice u laid in the case
    I cried with pain and joy, as tears fleed my face.
    Father am I ready? I wispered to the Lord
    So I picked up my son and droped the sword

    Kenydell my son...
    kenydell my image of perfection
    kenydell my #1
    Kenydell you have given me direction.

    Now Pledge to you...
    my wisdom :teach:
    my love :heart:
    my protection :uzi:
    my life :spinstar:
    and that I will stay here 4 you even in the afterlife. :angel1:

    Now you are growing and your first steps were what brought you to me.
    Come to me my son come over here to daddy.
    Your smile brightens my days as I look into your face
    I have wanted to give up soo many times
    but you have give me motivation to continue a stronger pace.
    grow on this my son to take control of your fate
    grow on this love when failure seem to bang on your gate.

    U are the reason I left the streets alone
    U are the reason I made god my stone
    U are the reason I am still alive
    u are the reason the streets never closed my eye

    For my son I choose to live
    To the Lord
    For my son I choose to give
    And throw away the devils sword

    "To live by the sword, You die by the sword"
    "To live for your son, Is to gain the world"

    Kenydell...Daddy loves you!
    Kenydell...Mommy does 2!

    You are my everything my son I give everything to you.

    Love daddy :heart:

    Yes this was definitly worth reading. You had so much emotion flowing within your lines. To have a child is definitly a job but yet a blessing at the same time. and the love we receive from that child or the love b/w the child and parent is the benefits.

    BLESSING INTINUALLY UNTO YOU.

    The love a father has 4 his seed is truly a wonderful thing.

    Stay strong in yours, brother, our princes need that guidance more than ever today.

    Very, very nice piece.
