Step-Dad

Step-Dad

A Poem by Manda
"

He may not be my real dad but I will always love him like he was my own.

"
You raised
And protected me
As if I was one of your own

   You gave me the dad
   I never had

      You loved
      And cared for me

         Walking the path of life
         With me by your side

            I was the daughter
            You never got to have

               I know you're not my dad
               But I don't care

                 You raised
                 And cared for me
                 As if I was one of your own

                    And with that
                    You deserve the title
                    Of being my dad

                       You loved me
                       And I will always love you back

Wow, this is so...true. I have a step-dad and he has done everything for me that my biological dad hasn't. He's definitely the Dad I wish I had had first. P.s-so sorry for how late this is, life happens right? :)

A wonderful piece that shows that just because somebody may legally be your "stepfather" it doesnt mean he can't also be just Dad.

This is a very good write Manda. I'm sure many people feel the same way you do who are in the same situation. The man who raised you, who was there for you always, supported you, etc. is your dad. Dad's are amazing to have and those who have a father are lucky. Whether he is your birth father, or step father, we are lucky, because some people don't have either. Beautiful write.

A sweet and kind poem. I hope your step-father get to read this. He would be proud of you for knowing wisdom and love. I raised three step-children. I did my best. Best honor for a parent is a children who is wise and know right from wrong. A outstanding poem.

Cool. I've BEEN an appreciated stepdad, so these lines speak simply and warmly to my own experience.

Kudos for the good relationship and tribute poem.

It seems that yes it does mean much to you. Having my father die when I was young was hard for me, but I can't say I ever had much of anyone to act in his place, not that I wanted anyone too. Although I do see from this poem that it is a very meaningful piece of your life.
