A Poem for Dads and Granddads

There are so many little boys without fathers in their lives. It is sad. How will they learn all of the little things to grow into a good man? Below you will find a short poem to both inspire and thank all of the dads who ARE there for their kids – every single day.


A careful man I ought to be,
A little fellow follows me,
I do not dare to go astray
For fear he’ll go the selfsame way.

Not once can I escape his eyes;
Whate’ er he sees me do he tries.
Like me, says he’s going to be
That little chap who follows me.

He thinks that I am good and fine;
Believes in every word of mine.
The base in me he must not see
That little chap who follows me.

I must remember as I go,
Thro’ summer sun and winter snow,
I’m building for the years to be
That little chap who follows me.
