Daddy are You Proud of Me? ~ her poetry

A poem that I wrote for my husband. When he read it, he said he’d never felt so understood before.

Daddy are you proud of me?

 

Daddy are you proud of me?

Daddy, did you know?

Your son is getting bigger now

Watch how fast I go!

 

Daddy are you proud of me?

Daddy, did you see?

Daddy, I rode my bike for the first time!

I rode it perfectly!

 

Daddy are you proud of me?

Daddy look my way

Look, Daddy, I’m in school now

Daddy, I almost got an “A”!

 

Daddy are you proud of me?

Daddy can we play a different game?

Daddy, why don’t you like me?

Daddy, what’s your name?

 

Daddy, say it isn’t so!

Nuh uh! You are too my dad!

I am your son

C’mon Daddy forget all that, let’s go have fun!

 

Daddy, why do you hurt me?

Daddy, what did I do?

Why can’t I call you Daddy?

Please say it’s not true

 

Dear Daddy,

Are you out there?

Daddy, do you care?

Daddy, are YOU proud of me?

Do you even know I’m here?

Daddy are you and me alike?

Daddy, you might not know but –

I’m your son. My name is Juan

But everyone thinks I’m Mike.
