Being a Father is not a Job, it is not a right, and it is not a status update.

 

Being a Father is not any subtle written word, palpable feeling or reality.

 

Being a Father is a chase.  Being a Father is an education.  Being a Father is a pleasant Dream on a beautiful winding road, despite the cliff near the edges.

 

As I prepare to watch you move away again my love….bracing my heart for the moment to come….I think back to naps with you on my chest swaddled, safe, and mine.

 

Nothing in this world can compete with your presence, your existence or the simple smile you give me when you look into my eyes.

 

Without you I was only a man wondering this earth.  With you, I am a man chasing the stars, fulfilled with purpose, opportunity and bewildered knowledge from nowhere.

 

To slump over in tears watching you go is not a bad thing.  It is a magnificent validation to your importance to me, for me and how powerfully I can love.

 

All I need in you, I have.  I will be your Daddyman into the next everything.  I love you.
