New dad to baby son poem…poem for a new father to his baby son. Our son and his wife are expecting their first child, a boy, in two months - the day after Mother’s Day…or sooner since he’s already 4 pounds which is near the top percentile for his developmental age. I’m planning the baby shower which will be in a couple of weeks. There is a theme that involves an activity which I can’t divulge just yet since, hopefully, my daughter-in-law reads my posts. But when it is over, I will be posting all about it then – baby shower poem and all!

New Dad to Baby Son Poem

In keeping true to my Nana’s Corner, I just had to find a new dad to baby son poem to fit the occasion to share with you. When I showed them to my husband, he chose this one, I Am Your Dad (a new dad to his baby son poem), to send to our son after he posted this message on his Facebook page:

“I can’t believe I’m gonna be a dad in 2 months. So excited! If I can be half the dad mine was, my kid will be alright..”

I Am Your Dad

When I heard the news of you,
I did the things that most Daddies do.
I opened up my heart so wide,
For you to have a place inside.

I tried to imagine the person you’d be,
would you look or act like me?
I thought of the things we would do,
The times we’d share, just us two.

I would hold your hand in mine,
be your protector, strong yet kind.
I would be your hero and friend,
give advice on which you’d depend.

I remember the day you were born,
I cradled a miracle, small and warm.
What words I had were scarce and few,
A tear was the best that I could do.

Life gave me a moment so rare,
Bursting with pride, love and care.
I promised you then all that I had,
You are my child, I am your Dad.
