Cool Dad

I will never be a cool Dad

I will not wear the latest fashions

But you will never want for clothes

I’ll not allow you to eat too much junk food

But I’ll do my best to cook you tasty food

There will be no staying out all night

And each time you walk out the door I’ll worry

You won’t get a brand new car for your birthday

But I’ll make sure you are never without a safe ride

I will never be a cool Dad

I won’t let you fake being sick

But when you are I’ll nurse you back to health

You may not always have the latest gadgets or screens

But I will always make time for you

You’ll have to put up with my lame jokes

But when you’re hurting they’ll make you smile

I might embarrass you in front of your friends

But only with memories I deeply cherish

I will never be a cool Dad

I might hound you about your homework

But your grades will be proudly posted on the fridge

You might not want to tell me things

But you can always cry on my shoulders

I won’t give you everything you want

But you won’t need for anything

I might make you do chores

But you’ll be strong and independent

I will never be a cool Dad

I would never want to be a cool Dad

But I am over the moon about being your Dad

Because I love you



About The Lost Poet

I write because I find inspiration. It is my hope that through my writing some connections may be felt. Everything I write comes from my experiences with life, and with the people that I love. I try to remember to see myself in everyone, and everyone in myself.
