These words aren't easy to put on the page,©11/25/2012 Carol Welch
but 'family man' persists upon my mind.
The green, carefree boy, now has come of age,
and must within and out, resources find.
To earn a fair wage, to support a wife,
and find time for sweet ways he began,
in days of dating, continue on through life,
already a challenge for any man.
To add to the mix, their love brings to life,
a boy or a girl, or perhaps, a brood.
More mouths to feed, and still, the precious wife,
who needs to feel beloved to feel good.
The Father in Heaven, all-knowing, knew the best,
Help would be there, as He, only can.,
for the boy who grew, if he holds to the rest,
strong, loving husband and a family man.
