Parenthood Quote of the Day

Monday, September 22, 2014

Be the first to add this to your favorites!

My life, full of excitement; adventure!
The four of us curled up in my parent’s bed
Together each evening, like sunset so sure
Not watching TV, but listening instead
To my dad’s voice, I remember it clearly
Sometimes whispering, sometimes yelling
Making us laugh; we loved it so dearly
Mom, Steph and I, captured by his telling
Talking about love and life and glory;
Just reading to us a wonderful story.

Then we got cable and watching TV
Got more important than reading a tale.
But looking back I come to see
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be
– and this I think is really sad –
Than being together, listening to my dad.
