Father To A Son

Poem By Chad Shumate

Son I need to let you know,
That I will be there, every inch you grow.

From the time that you walk,
Until the time that you can talk.

Although your first word will probably be Mom,
It’s okay, from Daddy.com.

My job will be to raise you from a boy to a man,
I will promise to do the best that I can.

After I teach you about the birds and the bees,
You will have questions about the little girlies.

You are to treat them kind, respectable and be generous,
There will be time for joking, but you also have to be serious.

We can’t forget loving and caring,
Be careful; don’t let her use you when you are sharing.

At some point, your heart will be broken; this is not the end,
Remember I’m your Father and Dad, also a friend.

When trying times come your way,
Just say Dad I need help, I won’t lead you astray.

The moment has come where you enter adulthood,
I hope you’ve heard what I’ve said and understood.

Son, go out there and make me a proud dad,
I’ve given you all of the tools that I had.

Now I’ve played the parent game and I know I won,
This has been from a Father to a Son.

I'M Sick In Love With You

Finally, we can be together,
Like a booger to a nose in the winter weather.

I love the snot out of you,

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to myself,

I’m 42 and I have my health,

The Relationship Game

In this game you don’t have to be on the defense, play some offense,
This way your teammate will be loose before you play and not tense.

After The Argument

Just because you don't understand, doesn't mean that it's wrong,
You are not perfect and I will be here forever long.
Saying it loud, doesn't make it right,

The Alivebeat Dad

I am an alive beat dad,
Which means that I am willing to pay child support until you are a high school grad.

To me it's nothing to change diapers and give you a bath,
