It’s safe to say that not one of us dads could or would be a dad if not for a MOM!Â Actually, if not for two moms – our mom as well as the mom of our beloved children!Â As I write this I realize that I have already expressed similar thoughts here two years ago for Mother’s Day 2009…Â As we have many new readers, rather than re-invent the proverbial wheel, here again is a poem I wrote back then, “Without Moms There Wouldn’t Be Dads…” Â Enjoy, and have a wonderful Mother’s Day with all the mothers in your life.
WITHOUT MOMS THERE WOULDNâ€™T BE DADS
by Jeff Sass
There wouldn’t be Dads if not for Moms,
No boys to play baseball, or ask girls to proms.
If it werenâ€™t for Mothers there would be no Dads,
No men to be fathers after starting as lads.
If we didn’t have a Mommy there wouldn’t be a Daddy,
Who would be left to drive everyone batty?
It takes two to tango, and two to make kiddies,
Without all our Moms, things wouldn’t be so pretty.
Every Father started with a Mother,
So who can we thank? There can be no other.
To become a great Dad there are two women you need,
Your mom, and the woman whoâ€™s the mom of your seeds.
So every Dad must be full of praise,
And cherish every Mom on Motherâ€™s Day.
HAPPY MOTHERâ€™S DAY!
