As fatherhood is rapidly approaching my life,
I reflect on the enrichment, added by my wife.
Opening the door to the softness of my soul,
teaching me the beauty of self-control.
How to gather a diamond, from a piece of coal,
while using family, as our supreme goal.
From understanding the rain, to feeling the sun,
the warmth of a love, that I didn’t shun.
Now sharing in the blessing of having a son,
knowing that our lives have just begun.
She adds the light, when I dwell in the dark,
when I want to give up, she adds the spark.
She teaches me more, than she will ever grasp,
a love so pure, that it will make one gasp.
She is the definition of what love should be,
showering me with her devotion, so effortlessly.
When I think of my past, she pulls me away,
keeping me grounded, in the present day.
When Asher is born, it won’t outweigh,
it will only add to the love, that I feel today.
