Daddy’s Hands

A daddy talked to his son one day,

had so much he needed to say

“Son, I know I’m not the greatest man,

but for you I’d do all I can,

I know I don’t always have

a gentle tone, or gentle hands,

but still, I hope you understand

I Love you, even when

I have to discipline

When life is running you ragged

Driving you to madness

It can be the simplest things

that help bring peace to your day

Sometimes the profound

Can be found in the words

that children say


“I Love You, Daddy,

Do you want to play”

It reminds us that life’s not

about working it all away

It’s about the Love that we give,

the bonds that we make

We see kids murdering kids & we cry that it’s tragic, 

but yet there are parents who refuse to parent,

it’s like they think their kids will just turn out right by some kind of “magic

Train up your children in the way they should go,

if you don’t teach them, how are they supposed to know? 

For years you have them, you influence their minds & hearts, 

they learn & they grow, and in the home is where their education starts

Unlikely Patient

A Dr. had a certain patient on his ward that was new, they’d never met before

as he got to know him more, the patient really struck a chord,

The Doc was struck first by the fact

that the kid was in a mental institution at only age eight

The Doc thought no kid should have so much on his emotional plate

that they end up that way

He knew it’s hard enough for an adult,

but a kid has got to be feeling crushed by so much weight

He knew parents should be there for kids, to carry them through,

that no child should feel like they’ve got no one to turn to

We Can Handle That Too

I remember when my son was born I took a deep breath

Wondering how I would manage, I’ve got to confess

Some of those early days about scared me to death

when everything was so brand new

but somehow we made it through

We got a long way to go, but you know that’s alright

I know we can handle that too
