Better than Biology #PoetTues 6/20

True story… happened this past weekend. *wipes her eyes*


Better than Biology



My son Our son

Gave his step-mother, my wife

A Father’s  An Anna’s Day present

Something small

A card too

But it meant much, much more


You’ve been more of a parent

Than my father

Ever was


His father walked away

As soon as

He could


His father walked away

When he found

Something “better”


His father—

Some people should never

Have children


Biology does not

Make someone

A parent


Love does


So, Happy Anna’s Day

My love

My co-parent

Your steadfast presence

Has changed lives

For the better


And our children know it
