The Difference between a Dad and a Father
A Dad is someone who yells when the rules are broken
Someone who holds me when I cry
Someone whose smile warms me inside when I come through
Someone who has faith in me even when I fail
A Father is someone who gave away sperm
Someone who is the biological male parent
Someone who has the choice to take responsibility for his offspring
Someone who could donate a life to someone and never look back
I know not only do I have a Father but a Dad.
I know that when he yells he is teaching
I know he roughly jokes when I cry because he is hurting for me
I know he lied about the tears in his eyes at my first concert
I know that when he tells me to do better or else he believes I will
without the threat
I think my Dad inside scared about me growing up
I think my Dad still recalls when I was 6 and he didn't want to let go my bike
I think he didn't want to let go and see me skin my knee, and he still doesn't
I think that's why he still doesn't want me to take the ride of life on my own
I think he wants to be there to catch me when I fall
I know back then I needed my dad for everything.
Everything from learning to speak, to walking, to riding my bike, to learning
my times tables, to being a big girl.
My dad thinks that now that I'm leaving him.
I think my dad knows that he won't always be able to catch me
I know that that fact scares him.
