First Day

You will need me less after today
At least not in the same way as before
Some day you will be the one to lift me up
To drive me there, to help me fix it
To explain, to help me see
Growing as I fade away

I hope to help you on your course
There is no time to waste
For it's a short privilege that you are
My daughter, my son.


  1. This is beautiful.

    The love and guidance of a father is a precious gift, and a reward to both the child and parent.

  2. This made my wife cry. She is angry at you.

  3. Matt, sorry I it made your wife cry - hopefully, in a good way though.

  4. Made me sad too, but lovely Stephen!
