I BECAME MY DAD TODAY

I BECAME MY DAD TODAY

From Chicken Soup for the Father & Son Soul

I Became My Dad Today

I became my dad today
when my son looked at me that way.
That smile upon his face—
there could be no mistake.
When he looked at me that way
I became my dad today.

I became my dad today
when he held my hand that way.
The feeling of the touch
just reminded me so much.
When my son held my hand that way
I became my dad today.

I became my dad today
when I sang to my son that way.
The voice I had heard before
as a child sitting on the floor.

When I sang to him that way
I became my dad today.
