Our Evolution

(For my Papa)


They say we can’t choose our families

And I suppose, in general, that’s true

So when my family needed a father

God crossed our path with you


I must say things were not always easy

We certainly locked horns once or twice

But after a while, I have to admit

Having a ‘Father-figure’ was nice


Water balloon fights

Sneaking boys caught outside

Cross-‘county’ motorcycle rides

Kind and tender fatherly advice


You may not have been there from the beginning

Yet since we found you, all the good times and bad

You’ve been there to hold me, or sometimes to scold me

And shown me the joys of having a ‘Dad’
