I cried so hard  
When my children arrived
Made me so glad  
to be alive
Precious little feet
soon running around
loving them so much
  without a sound
look into their eyes
   what did I see
so simple and fun
  just let them be
A child does wrong
   teach them new
holding them close
   loving them too
going to school
   with innocence and fear
making new friends  
year after year
suddenly they change
   lifes little trick
caught up in worry
   making us sick
some try drugs
  drinking their way
to wrecking the car
  what can you say
but blessed with good luck
   after they fall
watch them get up
  and stand real tall
making me so proud
  to be their dad
as I remember all the fun
  we’ve always had
so blessings such as this
  hold nice and tight
cherish forever
   with all of your might
soon their day will come
  and without any fear
they see it too
  oh so clear
the birth of their child
  Gods own creation
Miracle of life
  Filled with sensation
Coming full circle
  Yet once again
Watching them go
  and remembering when
I love both of you
With all my heart
As I have done always
  Right from the start
