From a Father

Updated: Jan 29

By Larry Chamberlin, 22 June 2015


From the time I held you

for the first ever,

looked into eyes fresh

to the world,

you became my greatest

cheerleader.


Acclaim meant nothing

until your smile

acknowledged my deeds,

validating them,

and you never withheld

that sunshine.


For your sake I stood tall

unwilling to see

disappointment in those

ever fresh eyes.

I hope you will always be

my adoring child.
