How I feel about the love of my Mom's life. My step-dad. :) <3

William Kelley Dixson

 

My step-dad, rather, Daddy'O.

He's been there for me since the very start,

even when I pushed him away.

He took three kids under his wing,

a misheveled, depressed teenager,

and twin, hyperactive seven year-olds,

even though he didn't have too.

How can he not be great?

He made us into a family again,

showed us how to love,

and become one with a closer bond.

I pushed him away in the beginning,

because I had no desire to let another man

try to take my Daddy's place.

He reassured me, however,

that that wasn't his intention.

He said to me that he was,

there to be my friend,

to love me as his own,

to love me for me,

to help me when I was in need.

I cannot express to you,

just how much of a relief that simple statement was,

but god it was.

It helped me overcome the fear

of having a true step-dad,

and I let Kelley into my heart,

where he will remain forever.

It's been two years now,

since he walked into our lives

like a hurricane of mixed emotions plus

and an extra side of love.

Two years, since my Mother found

the best man she has

ever loved or been with.

Two years, that Brandon and Bailey

have had a true-to-his-word

Father figure in their lives,

who actually cares.

Two years, since I lost my Daddy,

but met the man I will proudly stand up for

and call him Dad.

William Kelley Dixson,

he is the only man I would ever

be proud enough of

to call Dad,

other than my Daddy.

He brought my family closer,

taught us the true meaning of love,

and I will forever be grateful.

I look forward to growing up,

growing stronger, and aging,

knowing that only a phone call away,

is the man I proudly call Dad.

I love you Dad.

Author's Note

Cassiopia Summers
This is my Dad, step-dad, however you see it. But this man is the best man I have ever met, and he will be there for years to come, and I am happy about that. I do not take to people easy, and neither do I trust easy, but if he told me to duck, I would do it in a heart-beat, no questions asked. I love this man with all of my heart, and I am proud he came into my life when my Daddy passed away. He surely, is a great man to call Dad.

This is a really beautiful tribute! I'm sorry to hear about your father, but it makes me happy to see that you have a wonderful step father now. Nothing beats knowing that you have someone who will always be there for you. This really did bring a smile to my face. It was very sweet. :)

As a stepfather myself I know its not an easy role, but very fulfilling - love the children of one's new partner isn't sutomatic, but I hope I can live up to the standard he has set!
