I was there when you first cried.
Your large black eyes staring at me.
Instantly, we both knew. I was dad.
The love was there, always had been.
Once you arrived, nothing was the same.
Nothing else mattered.
That’s me. I always called another man that name.
Now that name belongs to me.
The nurses said you were mine.
The resemblance was uncanny.
A mini version of the man.
I never changed a diaper before.
I didn’t know what to do.
Naturally it came to me.
Like I was programmed.
The love inside is unending.
There is nothing better than you.
