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
