"The Dad I Never Had"
     a poem by Mark Hall

The Dad I Never Had

To both my sons I love so dear I really want to say,  
The gift that you've given me,
is more than just Okay.

The bond that we have made,
Is a love only we can share.
The joy that you have given me,
is love that makes me care.

As a boy I always wanted a Dad to show me the right way.
To teach me how to throw a ball,
to teach me how to play.
A dad to pick me up,
every time I'd fall.
A man that I could count on,
to love me most of all.

A dad who would love me,
just like I love you today.
Back then I wished he loved me,
every single day.
A love that would fulfill me.
That's what I used to pray.

As time went on I learned to be,
the man I am today,
A man with out the help of a man,
the man that would not stay.    
A Dad that I could love, a dad that would belong.
To be there when I needed him,
to help me grow up strong.

But that was never meant to be and it felt so bad.
So I just smiled and changed my prayer to be,
The Dad I Never Had.
I thank both you boy's, you think of me and take me as your DAD
Because of you my life's fulfilled,
now life's no longer sad.
For that I'll always love you, you made me very proud.
You gave me all I wanted and that I'll shout out loud.

It's when you say I love you DAD that gives me such a smile.
A smile I never thought could be,
I've prayed for all the while.

To be the Dad I Never Had,
yes that is what I'd pray.
And now that you belong to me,
your love with me will stay.

That's why I thank you both,
on this Father's Day.
With the gift you gave me,
I no longer feel so bad.
I hoped to be just what you made me,
the Dad I Never Had.

A love much more than I deserve,
Is not all you did for me.
And so I want to thank you both,
for making me so glad,
It's what I really want to be,
The Dad I Never Had.

 Love Your Papa
