Father To A Son.

these tears of joy,
are for the first time that i saw you
my beatiful baby boy,
i never thought this love i would find,
for what i feel for you is so deep inside,
when i see your face i see mine,
when i look into your eyes i can see the sun shine,
no matter how hard times may get,
just remember that im here for you dont ever forget,
for you are my hart my strenght my all,
when ever you need me just give me a call,
for i will always be here for you until the end,
because im more than just a father im also your friend.

haha the Beatles and also dodie love it
My mother sang this to me when i was a baby
If people come here only to read the poem that inspired the Beatles' song, then they might also take the time to look at other English poets of the Elizabethan age, which I believe to be the golden age of English poetry.
I think Mr. Douglas is only joshing. Actually, doesn't Paul McCartney sing 'Golden Slumbers FILL your eyes? ' In any case, the Beatles put Thomas Dekker on the map, for those interested enough in the lyrics to do a little research.
...so you should believe if you think McCartey somehow beat Dekker in writing this. McCartney not being born until about four centuries later, though, I highly doubt this. The ballad was simply adapted to sound prettier in a pop-rock song. Wantons wouldn't have sounded all that well in a Beatles song, would it?
