It’s hard to pick a favorite one,
But this one might be mine.
This story holds a special place,
Within the sands of time.
This story fills my heart with joy,
And makes me reminisce
About the way God used my life
To show His providence.
There was a boy that caught my eye,
I never will forget.
On New Year’s Eve 2005,
Our stage began to set.
We hit it off right from the start,
He always made me smile.
But then came days of frustration,
That lasted for a while.
He prayed and prayed and never stopped,
He waited for my heart.
And then one day it all made sense;
He loved me from the start.
His patience stood the test of time
His love, it only grew.
He won my heart like no one else,
Then finally said, “I do.”
Our greatest days were yet to come,
The world we longed to see.
Then after we had settled down,
We wanted to be three.
The path to three was simple, right?
It wouldn’t take too long.
We quickly learned that this assumption,
Couldn’t be more wrong.
The path was longer than we thought
And full of tests and trials.
But on that road I barely walked,
This man, he ran for miles.
And even in the toughest times,
His patience wins the race.
His goal has always been the same;
A smile on my face.
I can’t imagine life without
This selfless, patient man.
That’s why I love to think about
Just how it all began.
You might hear mommy call him “babe”
Or maybe even “baby”
But I can’t wait to see his faceThe day you call him “daddy”
