If the nights depression had its way
Only dark and dreary things to say
I hold my baby across my chest
And find anew that I am blessed

Careful the boy not wake from slumber
I beg my wife to disencumber
A mothers care and loving embrace
Would mean a father had no place?

Meddlers might voice I have no care
And wonder what Iím doing there
In the dead of night this cynic grins
And wipes the dribble from babyís chin

I just had my first baby, boy, June 21st and funny..(not in the way you expressed) but my baby's father feels the same way. Great poem I like the way you expressed what a great feeling it is to be a father.

Good one! It's amazing what a child will do to us and for us! It's a different world through their eyes and God gives us a chance to relive our own childhood through them. I'm sure your son loves his daddy..hold him tight...love him without exception.
