I wanted to be his father,
For two years I loved him, felt the warmth of his little body in my arms
The beautiful smile the shine in his eyes when he looked at me,
His first birthday was a joy in my heart, he smeared frosting on my nose and we both laughed,
Our first Christmas was heaven as I watched his tiny fingers try to open the gift wrap,
The glow of Happiness I saw in his face
I wanted to be his father and see him grow,
I wanted to be his father and share in his glow,
His first day of school I wanted to know
I wanted to be his father as he grew up
But I didn’t get to be the father he knew,
He was stolen by his mother, with hatred inside
She told him I didn’t love him and filled him with lies.
A relationship stolen I had no control, my heart has been broken, I want him to know,
I wanted to be your father.
